In this research work a novel transformer less high boost interleaved boost dc-dc converter designed by switched capacitor and switched inductor for a fuel cell application is proposed. In this paper a fuel cell with an electric application, of a high power boost dc-dc converter is adopted to adjust the output voltage, current and power of fuel cell to meet requirements. The challenge in designing a boost converter for high power application is how to handle the high current at the input side and it has high switching loss. In this work an interleaved boost dc-dc converter is proposed with the absence of transformer and also with high boost up ratio. This converter reduces the fuel ripple current. Since the fuel cells are costly, an equivalent electrical circuit is implemented instead of a fuel cell.
