A renewable energy source that works alone can’t achieve customers’ requirements for a stable power supply. Therefore, the paper proposes a multi-input converter for hybrid renewable energy system. This converter is designed for two input sources, PV and wind generator in order to design high efficiency and high performance converters for renewable energy applications. The proposed multi-input converter is composed by interleaved technique with two step-up converters and the two inputs are accommodated with some extra semiconductors, inductances and diodes. The modes of operation based on the status of the four switches, where S1 and S2 operate as main switches in order to deliver energy from both voltage sources. A constant output power to the load is provided by switching S3 switch, which guarantied the appropriate output voltage by reduce the ripple and improve the reliability. Simulations of multi- input converter has been performed using MATLAB/SIMULINK. The simulation results confirm the validity of the proposed method, which can be seen as a promising new topology that ensure multi-input converter suitable for renewable energy applications.
