Step-Up Switching-Mode Converter With High Voltage Gain Using a Switched-Capacitor Circuit

  title={Step-Up Switching-Mode Converter With High Voltage Gain Using a Switched-Capacitor Circuit},
  author={Oded Abutbul and Amir Gherlitz and Yefim Berkovich and Adrian Ioinovici},
A new circuit is proposed for a steep step-up of the line voltage. It integrates a switched-capacitor (SC) circuit within a boost converter. An SC circuit can achieve any voltage ratio, allowing for a boost of the input voltage to high values. It is unregulated to allow for a very high efficiency. The boost stage has a regulation purpose. It can operate at a relatively low duty cycle, thus avoiding diode-reverse recovery problems. The new circuit is not a cascade interconnection of the two… CONTINUE READING
