So my two PV panels giving me an output of 40v, 1.5A. I am sensing both current and voltage of the PV output to give an MPPT duty cycle pulse. I want to boost the 40VDC to at least 400VDC and controlling the duty cycle of switching. I looked for multiple boost proposed circuits diagrams. some have transformers which I would not prefer to use in my design, I want the design to be a simple one but it has to do the job of stepping 40VDC to 400VDC. can you please provide me with the information or at least help me with the attached paper design


Thank and regards, looking for your help please

The circuit that you provide seems not as straight forward as many you will find and has the disadvantages of both having a transformer AND being non-isolated.

What is your application?
Whay do youi need 400 VDC?
What will you do with the 400V?
You say "at least least 400" - is higher acceptable?

In the above page this circuit uses L3 and T5 to do the part that you are asking about.

More conceptual - but covers aspects you may need to know about
