ABSTRACT
This paper presents an inclusive review of recent advancements in PWM dc/dc converters. Pulse dc/dc converters are classified into two major groups galvanically isolated and galvanically

1. INTRODUCTION
The estimation of power losses in high power
Using the distributed generation, converters became common and more innovative converters are produced these days. Latest converters are fit for associating with in an excess of supply out of distributed generation at a similar time and whose power gets exchanged to the output at the same time. The foremost common DC/DC converters encountered in low power applications cannot

A system of categorizing for snubbers is planned as a method of process snubber operation [2]. The dv/dt may be as high as 10 v/µs and leads to switch break down and/or radial EMI Electromagnetic Interference. Four dc parameters absolutely characterize every sort of regulator [3]. This
