1 Answer

SEPIC converter:

SEPIC stands for single-ended primary inductor converter. SEPIC converter is a DC to DC converter, the output of SEPIC converter can be more than input voltage or less than input voltage or equal to the input voltage. By controlling duty cycle of transistor the output of SEPIC converter can be controlled.
