Abstract: This paper presents the simulation of high voltage gain single stage inverter for distributed energy resources using PSIM software. In this, a Cu k derived circuit is integrated with Fly back auxiliary circuit to achieve high voltage gain. Here the capacitors of Fly back and Cu k circuits are paralleled for charging and connected in series for discharging. Due to capacitive voltage dividing, DC side switch voltage stress is reduced and losses are also reduced, hence gain can be increased. Simulation results are given to show the merits of the inverter.
