In this paper hybrid non isolated/ non inverting Nx interleaved DC-DC multilevel Boost Converter for renewable energy applications is presented. The presented hybrid topology is derived from the conventional interleaved converter and the Nx Multilevel boost converter. In renewable energy applications, generated energy cannot be directly used at application end. In most of the cases it needs to be stepped up with DC-DC converter at operating voltage levels as per the requirement of the application. Though conventional boost converter can theoretically be used for this purpose, but obtaining such high gain implies that boost converter should operate at it its maximum duty cycle, which is not feasible due to the great variations in the output voltage caused by small variations in the duty cycle, leading the boost converter to instability and also increases the voltage stress across switches. The advantages of presenting topology of DC-DC converter are high voltage conversion, reduce ripple, low voltage stress, non inverting without utilizing the high duty and transformer. The main advantage of presented topology is more number of levels can be increased by adding capacitor and diode circuitry to increase the voltage gain without disturbing the main circuit. Moreover, the presented topology is compared with several recent high gain converters. The proposed topology is simulated in MATLAB/SIMULATION and results will verify the validity of the design and operation of the converter.
