Abstract: The improvement in the efficiency, a reduced ripple and reduction in the passive elements is proposed in this project through the interleaved boost converter. The interleaved boost converter operates multiple phase approach, is used for the power factor control applications. The proposed converter is used to extract the power output from the solar panel with reduced ripple losses and greater efficiency thereby obtaining the maximum power from the solar panel. The control of the current with energy saving method is obtained with the efficiency of 95%. The converter operation is controlled by the fuzzy logic controller to operate the switches with the finest and reduced power loss constrains. The proposed method is mathematically modeled and the results are analysed. A similar prototype model is designed and the results are compared with the theoretical values.
