This paper introduces a Y-shaped impedance network for realizing converters that demand a high voltage gain while using a small duty ratio. To achieve that, the proposed network uses a tightly coupled transformer with three windings, whose obtained gain is presently not matched by existing networks operated at the same duty ratio. This capability has been demonstrated by mathematical derivation for the proposed network in comparison with other recently reported networks. To further prove the network performance, a single-switch dc-dc converter has been implemented with the network, before testing it experimentally. The results obtained clearly verify the network performance in addition to its higher power density that can generally be achieved by coupled magnetics. © 2014 IEEE.
