Back to Basics: Paralleling Power Components for Current Sharing

There can be many reasons for paralleling power components such as DC-DC converters for power delivery. One common situation is when the load current exceeds a single module’s rating. Another arises when a degree of power redundancy or fault tolerance is required. Paralleling of modules can provide an effective solution in either case, provided they share the load equally. However, most power components will not do this inherently. In power converter arrays, one or more of the devices will try to assume a disproportionate or excessive fraction of the load. Typically, the converter with...
