Recently, with the development of electric vehicles (EVs), in order to compensate for the undesirable effects of charging stations on grid characteristics, paying attention to the local generators based on renewable energy has increased and has caused to develop of the peripheral systems. In this paper, a high step‐up multistage structure consisting of several integrated boost flyback converter (IBFC) has been proposed. In the combination of these stages, the boost subconverters are interleaved in order to charge the battery bank and are in series with the flyback subconverters in order to supply the variable loads. The proposed structure has advantages, such as applicability in high voltage step‐up cases, enhanced reliability in photovoltaic system, and flexibility against variable power consumption. In addition, this structure at the no‐load condition has the ability to charge the battery system with proper voltage and supply several vehicles simultaneously without any voltage drop. Furthermore, the energy stored in leakage inductor can be recycled instead of damping with passive snubbers, resulting in high conversion efficiency and simple circuit structure with fewer components. The performance of proposed structure is analyzed in detail at no‐load, loading, and input power outage conditions. Then, the proposed converter with solar panel input power in order to supply the EV charging system is simulated in Matlab/Simulink to verify the analytical results. Finally, a three‐stage prototype (17.3–240 V) with 60 W solar panel input has been developed, which validates the feasibility and the effectiveness of the proposed topology using variable loads (180, 360, 720 W).
