AbstractCurrently, global warming has become a major problem. The pollution caused because of conventional internal combustion engines are increasing dramatically. Electric Vehicles are good alternatives to conventional IC engine vehicles in promoting a green environment. Controllers, converters, and modulation schemes are needed to provide a safe and reliable power transmission from energy storage systems to the electric motor in electric cars. In this paper, a design of DC/DC boost converter based on a PID controller is proposed. Moreover, a Back Propagation Neural Network (BPNN) technique is applied to generate the optimal PID parameters before using the PID. The proposed DC/DC boost converter is simulated using MATLAB software. The simulation results proved that the proposed DC/DC converter with PID-BPNN achieved higher performance and a stable output voltage.
