  • Publication number: 20200295664
    Abstract: A method for controlling a DC-DC conversion system having power conversion modules, input sensors, an output sensor and a controller, in which each of the power conversion modules has one or more conversion units. The output sensor detects an output signal of the DC-DC conversion system. The input sensors detect input voltage signals located at series-connected first sides of one or more conversion units respectively. The controller receives the output signal and the input voltage signals. The controller generates a first control signal according to the output signal and an output reference signal. The controller generates second control signals according to the input voltage signals and input reference voltage signals. The controller outputs a modulation signal corresponding to a corresponding one of the second control signals according to the first control signal and the corresponding second control signal, to control switches of a corresponding conversion unit.
