Multisim boost converter component

Hi,
 
How do you connect the Multisim boost converter to get it to work. The help is no help at all.
 
Thanks

Re: Multisim boost converter component

The boost converter is sometimes referred to as a Step Up Switchmode supply. Its basic application is to convert a low value, unregulated input voltage to a higher output voltage. For the model values used in this example, output voltage is determined by the relationship

Vo = V in/ (1-D)

where D is the switching duty cycle in the converter circuit.
The duty cycle (D) is determined by the value of the control voltage (V2) and is proportional to V2 so the smaller the V2, the smaller the duty cycle and the lower the output voltage.
In the example shown in the attach file, the boost converter is stepping up a 5V input to 10V into a 50 ohm load when the control voltage is 0.5V (a duty cycle of 0.5 (50.%)). Adjusting the control voltage between 0.1V and 0.9V produces an output voltage between 5.5 and 48V.

Hi,
 
Thanks for posting the connection diagram. What is the voltage source V2 for? Also please update you help showing how to connect this device.
 
Thanks

Re: Multisim boost converter component

V2 is used to control the duty cycle (D) from the following equation.
 
Vo = V in/ (1-D)
