In this paper, for efficient functioning of hybrid electric vehicles, a DC–DC converter which has multiple inputs is used. The output gain can be increased considerably than that of existing methods. The main input sources for these converters are fuel cell (FC), solar panel and battery. In which FC is treated as the main power supply and a roof-top PV is used which helps in charging the battery increasing the efficiency and reducing the fuel consumption. By using this converter, demanded power can be produced continuously even in the disconnection of either one or two sources. Moreover, in this, the strategy of power management is described. In order to authenticate and validate the prototype, this multi-input boost HEV can be considered. Which is implemented and is tested. This paper presents design and implementation of a system which gives the information about multi-input DC–DC converter for hybrid vehicle by using MATLAB/Simulink.
