A novel two-switch high-step-up isolated converter with voltage lift is proposed in this paper. The proposed isolated converter utilizes a transformer with low turn ratio to achieve high step-up gain. The secondary winding charges two boosting capacitors in parallel as switches during the switch-on period, and two boosting capacitors are discharged in series during the switch-off period. Thus, the converter has high voltage gain with appropriate duty ratio. In addition, by using two clamping diodes and a capacitor on the primary side, leakage energy is recycled, and the voltage spikes of the two active switches are clamped, thereby improving conversion efficiency. Finally, experimental results based on a prototype implemented in the laboratory with an input voltage of 24 V, an output voltage of 200 V, and an output power of 200 W verify the performance of the proposed isolated converter; full-load efficiency is nearly 93%.
