The voltage-lift technique is an effective method that could be applied in electronic circuit design. A set of positive output DC-DC converters applying series SEPIC implementing voltage-lift techniques is introduced. Compared with the prototype of the SEPIC converter, these converters can perform positive to positive DC-DC voltage increasing conversion with higher voltage transfer gains. They are different from other existing DC-DC step-up converters and possess obvious advantages, mainly including fewer switches, clear conversion processes and a high output voltage with small ripples. Since the proposed converters avoid using transformers and cascade connection, relative simple structures are beneficial to potential practical applications in future. A detailed theoretical analysis for continuous and discontinuous conduction modes is given. Both simulation and experimental results are provided to verify the main characteristics.
