Abstract: A Non-inverting soft switching buck-boost Converter is presented. One of the major hurdles that every converters face is switching losses. This loss is associated with the switches that are used to build the converters. To overcome this, magnetic coupling effect has been introduced to the proposed converter. This magnetic coupling effect helps the converter to obtain an adjustable soft switching range. Theoretically, it has been said that soft switching results in zero switching losses. That way, the losses due to switching can be neglected and that helps in improving the overall efficiency. In the paper, we have proposed a soft switching non inverting buckboost converter and compared its performance characteristics with various other converters.
