Step-up DC-DC converters are employed to raise the output voltage level from the input voltage level. Although the basic boost dc-dc converter has advantages like simplicity of implementation, it also has drawbacks like low boost ability and low power density. The literature has reported various topologies which have switched inductor/voltage lift, switched capacitor, voltage multiplier, magnetic coupling, and multistage types. Each converter topology possesses its own advantages and disadvantages with a focus on power density, cost, efficiency, reliability, and complexity depending upon the applications. Demands of such applications are being fulfilled by using new power conversion topologies. Various combinations of such boosting topologies with additional components are complex. This paper provides a simple glance to the basic law and context for the development of future DC/DC converters. This paper has surveyed and classified various topologies according to the voltage-boosting topology and characteristics. The banes and boons of these topologies are also discussed in the paper with the applications of each boosting topology.
