Saeid Moosavi

Volume 2, Issue 2 , April 2019, , Pages 137-144

http://dx.doi.org/10.22111/ieco.2018.25890.1059

Abstract
  DC–DC boost converters are unable to provide high step-up voltage gains due to the effect of power switches, rectifier diodes, and the equivalent series resistance of inductors and capacitors. A high step-up DC-DC converter based on the modified SEPIC converter is presented in this paper. Step ...  Read More
