An Improved Voltage Gain Employing Three-State Switching Cell and Voltage Multiplier Cell
Normally, the boost converter is used to improve the output voltage than the input voltage. A new topology of dc-dc converter is introduced for getting maximum voltage gain. The boost converter employing 3- state switching cell and voltage multiplier cell is used for improving the voltage gain and efficiency. It can be used in uninterruptible power supplies, fuel cell systems, and renewable energy systems. It is suitable in cases where dc voltage step-up is needed, such as electrical fork-lift, audio-amplifier and many other applications.
