Abstract: Conventionally, paralleling of power converters requires external interconnection cables for communication of load-sharing information, to achieve active current sharing con-trol. This is undesirable as these cables are sources of single point failures, restrict the location of the units, and inconvenience the implementation of additional con-verter modules during power system expansion. Hence, to eliminate these problems, this paper proposes an alterna-tive means of communicating the load-sharing information through using the FM wireless communication technique. The idea is experimentally tested using two buck converters parallelled under the Master/Slave current sharing configu-ration. The preliminary results showed current distribution property of satisfactory performance.
