Conventional DC-DC step-up converters present problems of low efficiency and low power density because of: 1. High power losses caused by hard-switching and reverse-recovery phenomenon. 2. High conduction losses produced by large peak currents when the converter has to operate at a high duty cycle. 3. Bulky and heavy cooling systems needed to dissipate the semiconductors losses. And, 4. Big and heavy capacitors and inductors required for smoothing and decoupling. Therefore, a novel Zero-Current-Switching two-phase interleaved boost converter with saturable inductors for reverse-recovery reduction is proposed. This converter can reduce the switching losses in the semiconductors due to the effect of the saturable inductors. Moreover, downsizing of the inductors and the output capacitor can be achieved due to the interleaving technique and the use of saturable inductors. In addition, high step-up operation can be achieved due to the presence of tapped-inductors. In this paper, the circuit configuration and the operation principle of the proposed converter and the reverse-recovery reduction behavior are presented. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed converter is experimentally validated with a 600W prototype where a recovery-reduction of 58% was achieved.
