This paper Proposes a bi-directional DC/DC converter on the secondary side of which an active clamp branch is added.Input DC bus of the photovoltaic power generation system .Bi-directional DC/DC converters can enable the charging and discharging process between the bus and storage battery By applying the microcontroller, seamless switch between charge mode and discharge mode can be achieved. Buck mode, parasitic parameters of rectifier diodes may lead to the spurious resonance.Boost mode, the leakage inductance of the transformer may cause pretty high voltage spike across the MOSFET.
