The paper proposes a new structure of SEPIC with high voltage gain for renewable energy applications. The proposed circuit is designed by amalgamating the conventional SEPIC with a boosting module. Therefore, the converter benefits from various advantages that the SEPIC converter has, such as continuous input current. Also, high voltage gain and input current continuity make the presented converter suitable for renewable energy sources. The modified SEPIC converter (MSC) provides higher voltage gain compared to the conventional SEPIC and recently addressed converters with a single-controlled switch. The analysis of voltage gain in continuous current mode (CCM) and discontinuous current mode (DCM) is analyzed by considering the non-idealities of the semiconductor devices and passive components. The selection of the semiconductor devices depending on the voltage-current rating is presented along with the designing of reactive components. The numerical simulation and experimental work are carried out, and the obtained results prove the feasibility of the MSC concept and the theoretical analysis.
