This paper presents the design and performance of a dc to dc interleaved boost converter with zero voltage transition. A soft-switched interleaved boost converter composed of two-cell shunted boost conversion units and an auxiliary inductor is presented and simulations are done in Matlab/simulink. The converter is able to turn on both the active power switches of the shunted boost units at zero voltage to reduce their switching losses and raise the conversion efficiency. The circuit is operated at different power outputs to evaluate its efficiency. The efficiency at different power outputs was found to be between 90% to 95% due to its zero voltage switching characteristics.
