Abstract
This paper presents the design, implementation and testing of a DC-DC converter. The values of the components used were calculated and selected. The circuit was first designed, and the components were built on a printed circuit board. The output voltage of 48 V was obtained and the light which acts as the load became brighter as the potentiometer was varied. The efficiency of the converter was 89.6%.
