The design difficulty of DC/DC converters is increased in aerospace applications due to the severe requirements and specifications that must be attended. The launch cost is very high and there is a permanent interest in efficiency improvement and in the reduction of the mass and volume of the satelites equipment. High efficiency is important since the primary power source of a satellite is a solar array and batteries, which contribute significantly to the total mass, volume and cost of the satellite. High reliability is also very important requirement and therefore, a simple power stage with very high efficiency would be the best choice for this kind of applications. Among others, the Flyback and the Forward with Active Clamp converters are chosen as the most suitable topologies to be analized and compared in detail. Detailed theoretical analysis predicts suitable solutions which can reach 92.39% efficiency.
