A high efficiency and high step-up isolated DC-DC converter with a new topology configuration for photovoltaic (PV) application is proposed in this paper. This converter consists of a Zero-Voltage-Switching (ZVS) and Zero-Current-Switching (ZCS) current-fed push-pull converter as a DC transformer dealing with most of power and an active clamp flyback (ACF) converter as a regulator with considerable high efficiency within a large conversion range. The two converters are constructed with the

The inputparallel connection is able to share the large input current as well as reduce the current ripple, while the output-series connection is used to increase the output voltage gain. A 400 V / 400 W experimental prototype with an input voltage range of 24 V -32 V is built. The maximum efficiency reaches at 95.1%. The experimental result validates the correctness of the analysis and proves the feasibility of the proposed topology for the photovoltaic applications.
