Abstract As the turns ratio of the tapped-inductor contributes to the step-up ratio, the tapped-inductor boost (TIB) converter has significantly increased level of difficulties in its analysis and design compared to the conventional boost converter where the duty ratio is the sole factor affecting the step-up ratio. In this paper, the operation of the continuous current mode TIB converter is briefly reviewed, the characteristics are analyzed in detail, and a design guideline optimizing the loss in the tapped-inductor is presented with a practical design example. Finally, experimental results from a 12V/120V prototype for 0.25A LED driver application are also presented to confirm the design.
