© 2014 IEEE. Coupled inductors have lately been used with impedance-source networks for keeping their shoot-through times short, while providing higher voltage boosts. The parameter that is critical to the operation of such impedance network based converter with coupled inductors is the leakage inductances. However, the role of leakage inductances and its effect on the converter performance is often overlooked. This paper analyzes the effects of leakage inductances and demonstrates experimentally how the presence of leakage inductances degrades the performance of the converter.
