A soft-transition converter is proposed which offers significant merits over traditional second order boost converter. The Boost converter provides higher voltage level at lower duty ratios and the ripple at input and output is also reduced. The Zero-Voltage Transition (ZVT) cell which is also incorporated into the circuit provides further advantages in terms of reduction of switching losses for all the switching devices. Mathematical analysis of the proposed converter is done for the various modes of operation. In order to verify the soft-transition performance of this converter simulation is carried out in PSIM and successful conditions for the ZVT operation are studied. The ZVToperation of the main switch and soft-transition operation of other switching devices is achieved in the simulation. Here 24V, 96W converter is analyzed and compared with the simulation results.
