Easy-to-Buy Encapsulated DC to DC Power Converters for Solar Power Systems

The sun has been useful to mankind in more ways than one. Solar energy in its passive form has been made use of for centuries. Later, solar energy was used to heat water for household purposes. Despite these uses, the use of solar energy that actively provides usable electricity is a relatively new idea. A few decades ago, the idea of using solar energy to power homes seemed to be a farfetched thought. But rapid progress has been made over the past few years in order to make this idea a practical and viable option.


Today’s solar photovoltaic power electronics systems have changed the image of using solar energy, being limited to the drawing board. These systems can be used over a variety of applications, right from powering a mobile phone to powering your home. Another important factor that needs consideration is the cost of installation of this photovoltaic system. It has reduced drastically over the years. Where a system would have cost in the range of $12 per watt of energy produced in back days, it now costs a third of that price in present days. Though all of the above factors that make solar energy seem like an attractive option, there are still issues concerning the efficiency of the photovoltaic panels.


Encapsulated DC to DC Power Converters in Power Distribution Systems

The contribution of encapsulated DC to DC power converters in power distribution systems is still arguable where improving system controllability, reliability, size and efficiency is concerned. Only a small part of the sunlight that reaches the PV system is converted in to useful electricity due to the inefficiency and failure-prone components used in most PV systems today. High cost and lower reliability of the power converters become barriers if power electronics is used as direct, one to one, replacement for the existing electromechanical equipment. However, if the whole power distribution system were designed as a system of controllable converters, the overall system cost and reliability could actually improve.


In the past, power electronics converters have been mostly employed for local power conversion from an infinite source to meet dynamic energy demands of a specific load. Today, high reliability applications such as hospitals, datacom centers, and semiconductor industry, have spawned the development of super-reliable local power distribution systems with the extended use of power electronics converters.

These systems include multiple primary and secondary energy sources, several levels of energy storage and back-up, and numerous active loads, all interfaced through electronic power converters. All of the emerging alternative and renewable energy sources are interfaced to the existing power systems through power electronics converters due to their very different dynamic characteristics.


Role of Encapsulated DC to DC Power Converters in Renewable Energy Systems

About 40% of the world’s power needs are currently met by electrical energy and that proportion is expected to rise as countries cut carbon emissions and shift to renewable energy sources. All the systems and products involved in converting and controlling the flow of electrical energy comes under the umbrella of power electronics.

In that case of renewable energy systems, a set of various power electronics components are required in order to convert the energy from one stage into another stage to the grid. This has to be done with the highest possible efficiency while maintaining the lowest cost possible and to keep a superior performance.


Encapsulated DC to DC power converters are used in applications where an average output voltage is required which can be higher or lower than the input voltage. The choice of the appropriate encapsulated DC to DC power converters for the implementation of both the MPPT system and its integration in the facility array has not been explicitly studied, despite its affecting significantly the optimum operation of the photovoltaic system. The aim of this work is to make a comparative of the photovoltaic system performance using three basic topologies of three different encapsulated dc to dc power converters and MPPT tracker for that we require the study of characteristics and properties of encapsulated DC to DC power converters, especially as regards the input impedance that they present under certain operating conditions. So that it may be possible to make a decision on the best configuration to be used.


Few comparisons such as voltage, current and power output for each different combination have been recorded. Multi changes in duty cycle, irradiance, temperature by keeping voltage and current as main sensed parameter.
