This paper presents a review on what a multiport converter is and its pros & cons. It discusses about the types of multiport converters present and those that have been developed in recent times. The efficient use of such converter in different types of renewable energy like solar and wind are laid out. For better understanding, a brief description based on the types of renewable energies is also added. Circuit and block diagram are added to give a vivid picture. Finally, the paper also gives a comparative study on the converters present in the current day based on efficiency, duty cycle and various other parameters.
