Renewable energy sources such as fuel-cells, Photo-Voltaic (PV) arrays are increasingly using in automobiles, residential and commercial buildings. For stand-alone systems energy storage devices are required for backup power and fast dynamic response. A power electronic converter interfaces the sources with the load along with energy storage. Existing converters for such applications use a common DC-link, which employ multiple converters. Proposed system in this paper is a systematic method for deriving Three-Port Converters (TPCs) from the Full-Bridge Converter (FBC).
