The purpose of this project is to introduce a design and development method of a de-de boost converter with constant output voltage. A de-de boost converter was choose because of its ability to step up the low input voltage to a high output voltage. From a fluctuating or a variable input voltage, boost converter is able to step up the input voltage to a higher constant de output voltage. To obtain high performance control of a de-de converter, a good model of the converter is needed. The load usually affects the dynamics and one way to take this into consideration is to regard the load as a part of the converter. The load is often the most variable part of this system. This converter is consist of a single semiconductor switch that are mosfet, a diode, an inductor and a capacitor. The process involved in this project are designing the boost converter circuit by several calculation (theoritical), simulating the boost converter circuit, designing the circuit layout on donut board, testing and troubleshooting the circuit and last but not least analysing the data based on the theoritical calculation, simulation and hardware development. The simulation studies are carried out in OrCAD PSpice software. The process of monitoring project progress is conducted by the lecturer which entitled as a project supervisor.
