Boost Converter, Coupled Inductor, Parallel Capacitor, High Voltage Gain


In many technical applications, it is required to translate a set voltage DC source into a variable-voltage DC output. A DC-DC switching converter converts voltage straight from DC to DC and is simply recognized as a DC Converter. A DC converter is equivalent to an AC transformer through an incessantly variable turn’s ratio. It can be used to step down or step up a DC voltage source, because a transformer. DC converters are widely used for traction motor control in electric automobiles, trolley cars, marine hoists, forklifts trucks, and mine haulers. They supply high efficiency, good acceleration control and fast dynamic response. They can be used in regenerative braking of DC motors to return energy back into the supply. This attribute results in energy savings for transportation systems with frequent steps. DC converters are used in DC voltage regulators; and also are used, with an inductor in conjunction, to generate a DC current source, specifically for the current source inverter.
