The theoretical performance of the capacitor-diode voltage multiplier (CDVM) with impressed current input and constant voltage output is studied. The operating modes of the CDVM are described, and expressions for the voltages and currents are derived for the incomplete configuration. The results are immediately extended to any input waveform. The case of sinusoidal current input is fully characterized, giving useful design expressions
