pic18f25k20 should run from two AA cells 2.4 - 3.2V without a voltage regulator for lowest quiescent current. boost converter can be enabled on request. Running the pic from single AA voltage through low power boost involves considerably higher idle current, bad idea.

Input voltage is equal to output voltage at duty cycle 0. When duty cycle increased the output voltage was decreasing but no drop in input voltage.
Without load boost converter boost the voltage gradually.
This makes no sense.
* At 0% duty cycle there will be at least the voltage drop of the diode.
* with duty cycle... at whic

But i want output current was 50A.
That's a huge current, maybe you want 50mA ??
There are many buck/boost converters (linear and switching regulator) which you can find on

Its not that simple, because a boost converter can run either in continuous or discontinuous mode of operation, and can also have a right half plane zero.
You will need to either build it or model it, then do some dynamic testing under the expected extremes of operation.
It will very likely require a very slow integral control loop for (...)

A MPPT controller might be still required.
What's the load powered by the boost converter?
What's the expected behavior if the requested load power is greater than the available solar power?

I'm using a boost converter, at a 15kHz Switching frequency. I'm using a coupled inductor with a value of 2X1600uH.
I'm using a IGBT module where i am switching the bottom IGBT and the top IGBT is used as diode ( the reverse protection Diode )
The problem is that i'm having oscilations in the current during the switches. I attached (...)

This project is a different project and not related to my other projects and hence I have started a new thread.
This is about Buck-boost converter.
I need to get 325.0V DC from 150V to 300V AC.
Attached is the circuit. The DC-DC converter Inductor and Capacitor values are not (...)

It see this options:
- use a buck-boost converter to generate 12 - 15V for the IR2110 independent of supply voltage
- use a low-voltage halfbridge driver like FAN7080
- use any other driver circuit (e.g. discrete transistors) that can work with lower supply voltage
Please observe that a low voltage driver must use logic level FETs.

I read carefully about the datasheet of LTC3810, it is a step-down DC/DC converter. But someone said it has boost function, who can confirm it has step-up DC/DC or not?
and who can recommend me a step-up DC/DC conventer to replace LTC3810? Industial, is preferred.
Attachment is the LTC3810 datasheet.

i need two levels of voltage to be fed to the motor. i.e, 90V and 230V.
Why, particularly? Usually motor voltage is varied continuously by means of pulse width modulation.
why cant we directly give the boost converter output to inverter.
You can, if no isolation is required and the voltage level is appropriate fo

Your most crucial problem is that 100mV will not turn on
any "regular VT" device, and any "native" (VT ~ 0) device
will not turn off full (so very wasteful of input power).
To run a decent boost backend you would need to ring
up a supply nearly as large as what you hope to create,
just for gate drive. That alone will probably consume
all or most

How's everyone doing? I hope everyone is doing well.
I need some help with the method/formula for selecting an out capacitor for my boost regulator. Any help is greatly appreciated.
In the manual for the LT3795 everything has a description with formulas for selecting all the components, except for the output capacitor.

It's a boost converter. The two transistors are arranged to increase gain (similar to a darlington or sziklai pair). The capacitor charge and discharges, causing voltage variations at the left-hand transistor. It creates hysteretic action turning the right hand transistor On and Off.

Using a boost stage to get UPF in your transformer can give you a reasonably flat and stable output, just need to use good size electro's on the output, using a separate boost choke is a good idea as it reduces losses in the Tx, stick to 20-35kHz, you'll be fine... UC3854 is an old chip but works well - easy to set up...

I'm currently working on a circuit that has a SC4501 boost converter IC on PCB.
I was testing the PCB yesterday and I shorted the input of the IC. It then started to draw more current as if it was shorted out.
I tested what was wrong and it seems that the VCC pin has fried.
The input voltage at the time of testing (...)

It certainly DOESN'T mean boost converter!
Perhaps searching with it's full name will help, "Power Factor Correction", there is a good guide on Wikipedia.

Phases of the moon?
Sand storms on Mars?
You need to give us some clues about the boost converter, it could be any one of a thousand designs and we have no idea which you are taking about.

I'm looking to design a circuit that can be either wall input 5v/4A or battery powered (3.7v/4A). When plugged into a 5v wall input it should charge the battery as well as run the device from the plugged-in source. When unplugged the 3.7v battery combined with boost converter should step-up the voltage to 5v/4A. I have found some (...)

You have some boundary conditions - panel bus voltage max
and min, MPP current, battery charger input voltage and so
on. These would say whether a buck will do or whether some
corner might need boost capability. This all has to do with the
components at hand.
I'm sure you can find SPICE subcircuits or even a (...)
