Solar charged battery systems provide power supply for complete 24 hours a day irrespective of bad weather. By adopting the appropriate technology for the concerned geographical location, we can extract a large amount of power from solar radiations. More over solar energy is expected to be the most promising alternate source of energy. The global search and the rise in the cost of conventional fossil fuel is making supply-demand of electricity product almost impossible especially in some remote areas. A power converter is a key technology in the applications of solar power generation. This work proposes a new solar battery charger. The solar battery charger is composed of two solar modules and a dual-mode DC-DC power converter. The
operation of dual-mode DC-DC power converter is divided into two modes. One is the switched series/parallel operation of solar modules, and the other is the parallel operation of solar modules. It is suitable for the solar application because of expanding the input voltage.
