There is a fairly large number of methods for paralleling power converters. This paper classifies and examines these paralleling schemes, focusing on the active current-sharing approaches. Based on this classification, some new paralleling schemes can be achieved. Emphasis is placed on discussion and assessment of merits and limitations of these schemes. Finally, the prominent features of the dominant paralleling schemes are verified by simulation of a two-paralleled buck converter system.
