ABSTRACT : This paper presents the comparative study of DC-DC converters employed for standalone solar powered panel for single-phase supply. Presently, MNRE (Ministry of New and Renewable Energy) India, is compulsorily reducing the carbon footprint generated by production of electricity by incorporating the photovoltaic panel at every level. Increased demand of photovoltaic panel and its accessories needs to be efficient and must be economical. As in standalone system, the photovoltaic panel is preceded by DC-DC converter and then in series with DC-AC converter. In this paper DC-DC converter is discussed with the modeling and simulation of Traditional Boost Converter (TBC), Swithced Inductor Boost Converter (SIBC) and Coupled Inductor Boost Converter (CIBC) with rated power supply for single-phase inverter. In many cases, roof top supply system has become popular for domestic supply but still partial shading, design element, rating of component according to power requirement is a big issue. TBC, SIBC, and CIBC are discussed mathematically and graphically and then simulated in MATLAB.
