A voltage multiplier is an electrical circuit that converts AC electrical power from a lower voltage to a higher DC voltage and less current, using a network of capacitors and diodes. Voltage multipliers are widely used in many high voltage and low current applications where input voltage stability is not the major concern. Some application like microwave tubes requires negative high voltage for their safe operation. In this paper, the design aspects of multiplier circuits are taken in account on the basis of analysis and simulation results.
