Boost Converters

Boost converters rely on the fly back properties of inductors to create a top voltage on the output compared to the input. When the current pathway in an inductor is intermittent, a voltage is generated crossways the inductor in an attempt to remain the current flowing. Harnessing this voltage is the key to the performance of a boost converter. Boost converters appear tricky to design to start with, but with the assist of simulation tools.
