In this paper, the authors develop a high-efficiency Single-Input Multiple Output (SIMO) DC-DC converter. The proposed converter can boost the voltage of a low-voltage input power source to a controllable high-voltage DC bus and middle-voltage output terminals and low voltage output terminals. The high-voltage DC bus can take as the main power for a high-voltage DC load or the front terminal of a DC-AC inverter. Moreover, middle-voltage output terminals can supply powers for individual middle-voltage DC loads or for charging auxiliary power sources (e.g., battery modules) and low voltage can be used for charging battery.
