Boost Converter (Boost Diode)


This is a circuit that boosts the input voltage to a higher output voltage. The main switch stores magnetizing energy in the inductor during the on period, and the diode turns on during the off period, supplying the magnetizing energy of the inductor to the output. The voltage conversion ratio M is determined by the on/off duty ratio D of the main switch and is given by the following equation.
M = 1 / (1-D), Normally, D <= 0.8, M <= 5


- Various choises of Boost Switch depend on system requirements
     - Lower cost SJ-MOSFET
     - Lower loss SiC MOSFET, IGBT
     - Smaller Package choises from 3-leads, 4-leads or 7-leads,
- Boost diode can be choosed from
     - Si Fast Recovery Diode
     - SiC Shott Key Diode
