Boost Converters

Abstract

This chapter describes switching boost regulators, both charge pump and inductor based. Low-voltage devices powered from a battery and medium-voltage devices powered from a standard 12- or 24-V supply are discussed. Design examples are given for continuous and discontinuous conduction modes, with details of equalization required. Undervoltage and overvoltage protection methods are described.
