The aim of this paper is to analyse the soft switching two phase boost converter for photovoltaic (PV) system. The important parameters that affect the system performance are input current and voltage ripples. The advantages of two phase boost converter include increased efficiency, reduced size and improved reliability. This converter can be used in such applications for interfacing. By adopting soft switching method, reduction in switching losses and also reduction in ripples can be achieved so that system efficiency is improved.The simulation study of two phase Soft Switching boost converter fed by PV source is carried out using MATLAB and results are presented in this paper.The comparative analysis is also made among the two phase converter with different inductor coupling.The hardware implementation of two phase soft switching boost converter with directly coupled inductor has been carried out and the results are presented.
