Multi-port DC-DC converters are gaining more prominence in interfacing multiple sustainable energy sources, storage systems and loads with one integrated topology. They feature reduced size, lower cost, better efficiency due to single power stage, faster response and compact centralized control. This paper proposes a tapped boost derived DC-DC converter for interfacing a solar PV source, battery energy storage system and load. This converter ensures a high step up ratio with good efficiency without the need of isolation. The operation of the proposed converter has been validated through simulation.
