300W AC-DC converter AC 220V 230V to DC 24V 12.5-15A (peak current) power switching Transformer.
Would it be possible to run two of these in parallel?, and would this then give you a total output of 600W DC. 25 - 30A (peak current) ?.

Simply adding power supplies in parallel usually doesn't work since no two power supplies are exactly equal. Some means of load current sharing is required. See e.g. this article.
