Abstract

This project involved the design of a high-voltage DC-DC converter capable of converting 12VDC into 170VDC and delivering 250W of power. The design is based on a push-pull topology utilizing power MOSFET switches, a custom center-tapped transformer, and an all-analog feedback control system. The design comprised the front-end of a DC-AC sinewave inverter and was implemented using a custom PCB and tested. The control circuitry worked as expected, however the power-side switching posed several issues that remain to be resolved.
