In this manuscript, a non-isolated converter with high static voltage gain is presented. The designed converter has the feature of stable frequency and output even though disturbance occurs. It also achieves extreme voltage conversion, good efficiency, low voltage stress and less switching loss. The voltage doubler technique is implemented in the designed converter. With reduced duty cycle, the high voltage conversion is achieved. The proposed single-switch converter is controlled by fuzzy-controlled technique. The functioning process of the converter below continuous conduction mode (CCM) is explained. The input source of 30 V is stepped up to 400 V. The simulative analysis of the proposed converter is complete with MATLAB and Simulink.
