The challenges related to carbon dioxide reduction and depleting fuel resources have targeted analysis into the electrification of transport together with electrical battery-operated vehicles and fuel cell vehicles. Fuel cell instruments takes the advantage of excessive energy transformation potency. Conversely, fuel cell production is comparatively low voltage and thus it cannot be operated directly for electrical automobiles that necessity a high DC bus voltage. To match the voltages among the fuel cell stacks and the DC link bus of fuel cell vehicles, a proposed converter is required as a power interface. In this proposed work, a single-switch boost DC-DC converter has been designed and analyzed.
