DC-DC Converter plays a vital role in various applications such as medical instruments, electric machines, aviation. This work projects the concept of super lift converter. Super lift converter is a type of DC-DC converter in which the output voltage increases in a progressive range. The converter proposed is Negative Output Super Lift Luo Converter (NOSLLC). The NOSLLC converts the positive input voltage into a negative output voltage in geometric progression. The state space model of NOSLLC is carried out to check the stability of the system. Frequency analysis is done using Bode and Nyquist plots. The stability is inferred from these plots and the results are verified using simulation and validated with theoretical calculations.
