Abstract: The idea of DC-DC converter with multi-input is yet to attain a vital role in the field of ‘hybrid energy system (HES)’ integration and electric vehicle applications. So, the analysis of the dynamic behavior of the multi input converters is crucial in designing a proper controller to achieve a stable performance. This paper reports a ‘small signal model (SSM)’ and the performance analysis of a ‘dual-input DC-DC converter (DIC)’. The parasitic resistances of capacitor and inductor are considered in the modelling. The significant transfer function (TF)s are derived with the help of the SSM, and the Bode plots for the TFs have been obtained. The performance analysis shows that the derived TFs allow better closed loop performance of the system. The simulation of the DIC converter in MATLAB/ Simulink® has been carried out and the simulation waveforms are presented. A hardware setup of the DIC converter is fabricated and experimented in the laboratory. The dynamic performance of the DIC is analyzed under the variations in the source and load conditions. The presented converter with a closed loop controller can be used in the applications to formulate a HES with solar-PV, battery, fuel cell, etc. Also the performance comparison of the DIC converter has been performed with other reported converters which shows that the DIC converter has higher efficiency and several other potential merits.
