A modular DC–DC convertor for high-output voltage applications is presented. The proposed convertor consists of DC–DC modules whose inputs are connected in parallel and the outputs in series, with a control scheme that ensures input current sharing among the modules and regulated output voltage. Moreover, it utilises single feedback sensing that achieves almost equal output voltage sharing among the modules.
