A three level DC-DC Boost Converter for High Gain Applications is proposed in this report. This converter is based on one inductor, one switch, 2N-1 diodes and 2N-1 capacitor, for an Nx converter, it is a boost converter able to control and maintain the same voltage in all the N output levels, and able to control the input current. The salient features of such converters are high voltage gain without using extreme duty ratio, use of few components and self-DC-link balancing. In these converter topologies each device blocks only one voltage level.
