ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: In this paper a soft-switching boost converter with auxiliary resonant circuit is implemented in mat lab. The conventional boost converter generates high switching losses during turn ON and OFF, and this causes a reduction in the whole system's efficiency. The implemented boost converter utilizes a soft switching method using an auxiliary circuit with a resonant inductor and capacitor, auxiliary switch, and diodes. Therefore, the system efficiency is improved.
