I was simulating this simple boost converter circuit in LTSpice and it always gives an incorrect output voltage. (Almost 500V, compared to 444V obtained by calculation).
As the IRF430 model is not available in the software, I tried using the model given in Infineon website, producing the following plot for output voltage. Then I tried the simulation replacing the model with one given in a book which produced the following result.
Then I simulated the same circuit in Cadence PSpice using same parameters, and surprisingly it produced an output waveform similar to the second result with the final stable output at ~444V. Was I doing something wrong in LTSpice or can this be considered a bug in the software?
