Tidal Power Generation using DC Generators with Power Converter

  • Pandiaraj R
Keywords: Tidal Power Generation (TPG), PMSG, Total harmonic distortion (THD).


In general Tidal Power Generation (TPG) involves more than one turbine. If the generated power is low, single source boost converter can’t able to provide power continuously. This paper presents a multi-tidal based multiport DC-DC converter with Single Switch Boost Rectifier (SSBR) is used increased voltage gain is proposed. Further the proposed multiport DC-DC converter illustrates lesser harmonics in the output current. More than one source is used in proposed multi port dc-dc converter to continuously supply reliable power. The simulation of proposed DC-DC multi-port converter is done in MATLAB/Simulink environment and to verify merits of proposed converter, the results are presented.
