In this paper, the authors propose a novel dc-dc converter called the dc-dc Multilevel Voltage Multiplier (MVM). In general, an Nx MVM can be built by using two switches, 2n-2 diodes and 2n-2 capacitors, free of magnetic components. It is based on the multilevel converters principle and designed for unidirectional power transfer applications. Each device blocks one voltage level, therefore high voltage converters can be synthesized with low voltage devices. The main advantage of this topology is the reduced number of transistors and gate drives.
