Abstract

This research aims to design and test a programmable step-up converter for collecting the residual electric power in used batteries. Used batteries may have residual electric power. The residual electric power should be recovered in order for people to use it again. The input terminal of the developed programmable step-up converter connects to used batteries and the output terminal connects to normal rechargeable batteries. The developed programmable step-up converter was able to pump the residual electric power in used batteries into normal rechargeable batteries via a pulse width modulation technique even though the used batteries’ voltages are lower than the normal rechargeable batteries. Therefore, the residual electric power collected by the developed programmable step-up converter can be utilized again by people. This research is effective in energy-saving and environment protection.
