Abstract: A BDR (battery discharge regulator) required to keep battery voltage within acceptable limits and improve life of the battery. A converters with greater reliability, high power density, tolerance to any fault, are needed for BDR in space craft power supply. Weinberg converter topology is suitable meet this specification. This topology can be treated as a modified push-pull converter topology with coupled inductor. Use of coupled inductor makes output current of converter is continuous, which reduces the output filter capacitors requirement. In this, working of converter and its main features are explained and also practically implemented the converter and its results are analyzed. 
Keywords: Weinberg converter, fault tolerance, battery discharge regulator, coupled inductor.
Scope of the Article: Structural Reliability Analysis
