The loss analysis of a switched capacitor converter (SCC) with a boost reactor is discussed in this paper. The proposed SCC can deliver an output voltage independent from the circuit structure comparing to other voltage control methods. The main feature of this circuit is that most of the energy for the boost up function is transferred from a flying capacitor which results the inductance of the input reactor can be reduced. The reactor size of the proposed SCC is smaller than that of the conventional boost converters. A 1000 W 3-level SCC prototype has been built and tested. The efficiency of 97.8% is achieved at 1000 W when the boost up ratio is three times. Moreover, the loss analysis shows the main loss of the proposed SCC is the diode conduction loss.
