The analysis and design of a parallel AC to DC CUK converter circuit based on power balance control technique for DC Distributed Power System (DPS) applications are presented. The three parallel modules system with fast dynamic response using single voltage loop control and inductor current calculator for input current wave shaping, inductor current sharing and output voltage regulation, while keeping the power factor very close to unity have been shown. The experimental prototype have been built with a DC output voltage -48V and output power 750W. Each converter operates in Continuous Conducting Mode (CCM) together with hysteresis current control. The experimental results indicate that such scheme is effective and offers the fast transient response. The results obtained are: power factor greater than 0.99 and input current Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) less than 3%. The system offers 85% efficiency and provide good current sharing among the converter modules.
