    Abstract :

    Electric drives are gaining its importance, as the convention energy sources are at the verge of depletion. ThePMDC (Permanent Magnet Direct Current) Motor Drives are becoming popular, for its usage in compact electric vehicles. This paper is meant to conduct a comparative study of well-known KY converter, its coupled inductor step-up derivative, with the boost converter, to accomplish a performance evaluation of the same. In this comparative study, effectiveness of converter unit in the drive, power quality concerns of the produced DC output and its operation reliability are taken into account. Some simulation results are provided to emphasise the comparison between above mention converter topologies.
