In this paper design and analysis of super lift boost converter is presented. The proposed circuit eliminates some of the drawbacks in the conversional full bridge boost converter such as voltage and current stresses. Today the power electronics devices are smaller, lighter more efficient, less expensive and more reliable system. The full bridge topology is adopted here to obtain higher power output capability and higher conversion efficiency. The increase of the switching frequency reduces the size of the magnetic components but increases the switching losses. The proposed high frequency transformer link DC-DC converter topology is based upon a new conceptual secondary-side series resonant principle and its inherent nature. The proposed techniques is presented with 100 V input and output voltage of 100 V and also 25 V as input and output voltage of 407 V has been simulated and modeled using MATLAB/SIMULINK. The simulation results compared with conventional bidirectional full bridge dc-dc converter is verified its effectiveness.
