High voltage generally means electrical energy of higher magnitude sufficient to inflict human beings. So, safety requirements and particulars are to be followed while designing the model. The objective of this paper is generation of high DC output voltage from two methods, namely flyback converter and Cockcroft–Walton voltage multiplier with input DC supply. Mathematical modeling, control strategy, circuit operation, and design considerations are discussed. High-voltage power supply for a particular application has become cheaper due to latest advance in power supply technology. Many applications are of high DC supply in industry, research work, dielectric testing of high-voltage equipment.
