This paper discusses a multiport converter which consists of a single power processing stage with multiple input ports and single output port. Here, solar energy is considered as the main source and battery as the energy storage device. The system comprises of a Photovoltaic panel, lead acid battery, triple port half bridge dc to dc converter, control circuit and the load.Simulation results of the system with synchronous regulation are discussed for low voltage application. To validate the
