Design and Implementation of Single-Stage Boost Converter in Wind Power System
A new boost converter without an inductor is proposed for a small-scale wind power generator system. Experiments were carried out to compare the output powers and power conversion efficiencies for the converter without an inductor and the one with an inductor. Experimental results for the converters operated at both constant resistance mode and constant voltage mode were given. It was found that efficiencies for the converter without an inductor and for the one with an inductor are essentially the same. The cost may be reduced since the inductor is not needed in the proposed boost converter without an inductor.
