Member IEEE, College of Electrical Engineering, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China
In this paper a DC-DC boost converter with voltage extension cell is introduced to reduce losses and voltage stresses on circuit components. From theoretical analysis it has been analyzed that DC-DC boost converter coupled with extension cell enhances its voltage gain, which improve the life time of circuit components. Further to validate the proposed method, simulation has been performed in Matlab Simulink Software to compare the output voltage of boost converter with and without proposed method, result shows that the output voltage of proposed method is 35V as compare to simple boost converter 25 V. Voltage stress in case of basic boost converter is 25V while for boost converter with extension cell is 10 V.
