KY boost converter a non-isolated DC-DC boost converter is a recent invention which operates in CCM (Continuous Conduction Mode) which is known for low output voltage ripple with fast settling time.
In this article a Neuro-Fuzzy controller is designed using Simulink® to reduce the OVR (Output Voltage Ripple) and to improve settling time of the converter output. The simulation and experimental results obtained exhibit a reduction in voltage ripple from few milli volts of existing system to micro volts and the settling time is also improved in milli seconds with high efficiency.
