There are several families of DC/DC converters comprising hundreds of different topologies. Sorting through the various properties and characteristics is obviously a daunting task. Culled from the pages of the groundbreaking Advanced DC/DC Converters, this book provides a focused, concise overview of more than 80 topologies, developed by the authors, of essential DC/DC converters. The authors begin with an introduction to the basics of DC/DC conversion technology, then present an in-depth analysis of voltage-lift and super-lift converters. This book also includes a brand new chapter on the revolutionary ultra-lift Luo-converter. Several experimental and simulation results clearly illustrate the concepts.
