This paper presents the development of a DC-DC boost converter. In the proposed boost converter design, a passive regenerative snubber circuit is included to absorb the energy of stray inductance so as to reduce the IGBT switching losses. MATLAB simulation as well as an experiment results are conducted to validate the proposed device. The results show that the proposed boost converter design gives an efficiency of 93% which is better than the conventional converter (88%).
