Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC) is a versatile renewable energy sources that can be used in a wide range of applications. This paper presents a basic principle of PEM Fuel Cell, its operation and control when it connects with the interleaving 4 Phase DC Boost Converter. The power rating of DC Converter in this paper is about 1.2 kW., input voltage 26 V, output voltage 60 V and output current 46 A. The result shows that the operation of 4 Phase Interleaved DC Converter together with 1.2 kW of PEM Fuel Cell has a good performance. The efficiency of the overall system is around 85 – 95% when the experiment is set to a constant output voltage.
