Scalable and power dense configuration is a requisite for high power applications. This paper proposes a Multi-Input and Single Cascaded Output (MISCO) architecture interfacing PV panels at each channel of the multi input structure transacting power to LVDC-µG. The topology offers an extendable and modular solution with minimized common mode and circulating currents with reduced stress over the devices with the flexibility of independent control on current for all the connected panels, thereby improving the reliability. The MISCO converter is simulated in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment.
