Averaged Model of a Three-Port Solar Power Converter
This paper describes the process that was gone through to develop an averaged model for a three-port converter topology. The converter is based on a modified version of the isolated half-bridge converter topology. This modified topology utilizes three basic modes of operation within a constant-frequency switching cycle to provide two independent control variables. This allows tight control over two of the converter ports, while the third port provides the power balance in the system. The averaged model includes both the DC response of the circuit and the AC response. The DC response of the circuit during DCM is also considered. Simulated and experimental results are presented that validate the accuracy of the model. This model can be used in the future to design the feedback regulation loops needed to control the circuit
