Thispaper presents a comparative analysis of two high gain dc-dc converters with Voltage Multiplier Cells (VMC) for Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) applications. Voltage Multiplier Cells (VMC) are used to improve the voltage conversion ratio. These high gain dc-dc converters are used as the front-end converters for Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) circuit to produce pulsed output of higher amplitude for bacterial inactivation in food particles. The basic concepts of two high gain converters are discussed and a comparison in terms of the switch voltage stress, output diode voltage stress, input current and output voltage from the Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) circuit are done. The performance comparison and analysis for both the converters are achieved through the results from MATLAB simulation.
