In this paper, a multiphase boost converter is proposed to achieve high voltage gain and high power gain. The proposed converter operates in continuous conduction mode (CCM) with soft switching of main and auxiliary devices. The transformer in a conventional converter is replaced by an auxiliary circuit which provides the desired voltage and power levels. The zero voltage switching (ZVS) and zero current switching (ZCS) of the devices is achieved in this topology. The proposed converter is configured with proper number of series and parallel connected basic cells in order to obtain the required output voltage and power levels respectively. Simulation results are presented for a 380V, 750W and 230V, 3000W loads.
