In this paper present a soft-switched current fed modified push–pull converter for PV application. The main objective of this work is to reduces the switching losses, increase the voltage gain without increasing turns ratio of high frequency transformer and increase the efficiency. The switching losses of proposed converter is reduced high frequency transformer primary-side switches are turned OFF at the zero-current Switching condition through parallel resonance. In addition, the turn ratio of the transformer can be reduced by using a voltage-doubler of secondary side. The performance of the proposed converter is verified by simulation and experimental results.
