Normally the Cûk converter is used as DC/DC converter that has two types of output voltages in magnitude that is; the output is either greater than or less than the input voltage magnitude. The basic construction of a Cûk converter is essentially a boost converter followed by a buck converter coupled by a capacitor. Unlike buck-boost converter the energy delivered by a Cûk converter is stable, easily attainable to the desired level and energy efficient. In this paper, the performance of a Cûk converter is investigated and shown that the performance can be significantly improved by two or more stage cascading.

Cûk converter, Cascading, Buck-boost, MOSFET etc.
