Applications of multiport converters

Mihai Mihaescu


In this paper are presented some applications of the multiport converters. The most significant examples from applications of the multiport converters presented in the literature are selected here from the following areas of usage: electric cars, energy generation systems from renewable sources, and microgrids for distributed generation. The objective is to shown that the multiport converters must be designed and then analyzed according to their area of applications. The simulation results shows how different multiport converters operate with more switching elements connected in series and parallel in order to assure the load demand based on available energy from the input sources and/or energy storage devices. The operating modes are analyzed based on different energy management strategies proposed here.
