Do you know about topologies that look like this?

This is a 3-level single-phase boost converter. I think it has been originally presented in a paper at APEC in 1995: You can simulate this structure with SIMPLIS for instance and the below circuit is ...

Do you know about topologies that look like this?

Do you know about topologies that look like this? Yes. Is this right? Yes, that is one variant of the family of converters known as "3-level boost converters". How do I search it? Well, ...

Ironing out a design for resonant inductive coupling on 13A. Would I be better off with MHz or GHz for efficient power transfer?

From what I gather higher frequencies allow for more efficient power transfer No, that is not correct. At the higher frequencies (such as high VHF or UHF) it's more likely that you'll be transmitting ...

Multiple resonance frequencies of common-mode choke

Transistor models becoming less resembling subcircuits and more like fitted approximations, models of magnetics follow suit. Wurth's model of 744830017132 does not show high-frequency peaks of the ...

Given that \$Q = {R} {\sqrt{L/C}}\$, why not maximise Q by setting L huge and C tiny?

... why not maximize Q by setting L huge and C tiny? Guess ... No OP "current" defined ... Should be "difficult" to set a huge L. Calculated with coil64, air inductor, multilayer, ...

Given that \$Q = {R} {\sqrt{L/C}}\$, why not maximise Q by setting L huge and C tiny?

Given that Q = R/sqrt(L/C), why not maximise Q by setting L huge and C tiny? There are several issues to consider. The first is the impedance of the tank network. Although the Q varies as \$\sqrt{L/C}...
