A novel single active switch two-diodes high-voltage converter is presented. This converter can operate into a capacitor-diode voltage multiplier, which offers simpler structure and control, higher efficiency, reduced electromagnetic interference (EMI), and size and weight savings compared with traditional switched-mode regulated voltage multipliers. Two significant advantages are the continuous input current and easy isolation extension. The new converter is experimentally verified. Both the steady-state and dynamic theoretical models are correlated well with the experimental data
