I am designing a boost converter for wind turbin, with load 12Vdc, 2A. Before I install my boost converter on my windturbin, I putt a test to make sure it work properly. So I use this circuit to simulate
the battery represent power supply and I use tip142 as the gate driver. with no load circuit, the boost converter is working. but when I add load, like the circuit bellow
it's not working, there's no boost effect measured. power supply work in current mode in low voltage. Is it because the gate driver? Do I really have to use bootstrap? or something else?
