A Novel Charger/Discharger for the Parallel Connected Battery Module System 2000-01-3602

A novel integrated battery charger/discharger converter for a standardized battery module is proposed. Instead of using separate charger and discharger converters, it integrates these two converters into a single converter in order to minimize the size. The integrated charger/discharger converter not only regulates the solar array output power including the peak power tracking capability but also controls the battery charging/discharging current depending on the solar array output power and the load power. In addition, it offers a regulated bus voltage that simplifies the power distribution/conversion for the payload.
