An extensive small-signal analysis of a voltage-mode controlled interleaved dual boost (IDB) converter operating in continuous current mode based on signal ﬂow graph approach is proposed. Small-signal ﬂow graph is developed, from which open-loop small-signal transfer functions are derived using well known Mason’s gain formula. Closed-loop small-signal input-to-output, control-to-output transfer functions are also derived and frequency response characteristics are determined at diﬀerent duty ratios. Voltage-mode compensator designed using K-factor approach is used for closed-loop operation of IDB converter. Load voltage regulation against supply voltage and load disturbances are demonstrated through experimental results.

PWM boost dc–dc converters are some of the simplest power electronic circuits. They are widely used in regulated power supplies and also in specialized high power applications such as dc motor drives, battery chargers, plating and welding [1,2]. However, the conventional boost converters have the disadvantages of high ripple content both in the source and load current waveforms, possibility of entering into discontinuous current mode at low switching frequencies, loads etc. To overcome some of these problems, dc–dc converters are frequently paralleled to reduce the ripple content, increase the power processing capability and availability of the power *

electronic system. In the development of new paralleling techniques for dc–dc converters, interleaved power conversion [3,4] constitutes one of the most promising alternatives because of the following advantages: (i) ripple cancellation both in the input and output waveforms to maximum extent (ii) lower value of ripple amplitude, high ripple frequency in the resulting input and output waveforms (iii) eﬃciency of the parallel connected converter system can be improved if a proper number of converters in the system are activated. Further, parallel connection of converters has many desirable properties such as reduced device stresses, fault tolerance for the system, ﬂexibility in the system design etc. This converter system may be subjected to disturbances like source, load and system parameter variations etc. To improve the dynamic performance of the converter system, closed-loop control is essential.
