Abstract: Multi input converters are highly reliable and can be effectively used for hybrid systems. Here the performance of a dual input system is experimentally verified by powering it with a solar and a battery and the whole system is monitored using IOT. A DC to DC converter which can operate with two sources is designed to operate with two input DC sources and the output DC supply is converted to AC by an inverter module. Power IOT based monitoring system is the main scope of this project which is achieved using an ESP8266 Arduino core and GSM technique. High conversion efficiency, soft switching realization and simple architecture are achieved in this system. The simulation results is presented under various values of operating conditions. A scale down model was developed which is powered by a 3Wp solar panel and a 12 V battery. The performance of the system was verified with various input conditions and the system parameters were monitored using IOT and the data samples were obtained.
