The DC–DC boost converters had marked their importance in the field of renewable energy sources with their excellent features. Along with the time, various topologies of boost converters have been introduced to enhance its efficiency and make it more reliable. These boost converters are associated in many applications along with certain drawbacks and a research trend is developed to improve the performance of boost converters. This paper carries out the simulation of the proposed converter and tries to prove the effectiveness of the converter that overcomes the drawbacks of many boost converter topologies such as low voltage gain, high-input ripple current, high duty ratio, high inductor core losses and high stress on switch. The simulation has been performed on PSIM tool and the results of the proposed converter are verified using PSIM software.
