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 non-isolated. The latter is further classified into buck, boost and boost-buck types. Galvanically isolated is classified into 5 major types such as forward, flyback, push-pull, half-bridge, bridge type. In this paper the advancements of Forward Converters without galvanic input-output separation, Forward Converters with galvanic input-output separation, Boost converter that steps up voltage, Push-pull converters and Cuk Converters have been discussed. These types of converters are mainly used for abridging power supply systems, segregating primary and secondary circuit and matching load with power supply.


Forward Converters, Galvanically Isolated Forward Converter, Push Pull Converters, Ćuk Converters.
