Abstract
The Program will demonstrate, at hardware level, a low cost, all solid-state power solution to providing 250W-300W high-efficiency, compact/subcompact, low weight, DC-DC upconverter delivering 6000 Volts DC power from 30 VDC battery pack power to an acoustic (sparker) source with efficiency greater than 90% (Vin/Vout) efficiency. To achieve this we are proposing a completely different approach of an all solid-state converter using series-parallel electrical architecture.
