    I have a variable voltage DC source(42V-48V) and i want a constant 48V output. can i achieve that throug dc to dc convertors??

    If you have sufficient input power, you might use a buck-boost, SEPIC, or similar topology. You might get by with just a boost topology, but I have a feeling that your input voltage may exceed your desired output voltage.

    i have a dc power source with 43-48V output. but i want a constant 52V output. will dc to dc converter work for me? and if yes, can someone give me some link for that!! it will be of great help!!

    Hello,

    I moved the last post from the hijacked thread to your own.

    How much current do you have available at 43v-48v?

    How much current do you need at 52v?

    Without the above information, it will be difficult to suggest a suitable circuit.

    What is it exactly that you are wanting to do?

    It sounds like you want to charge a battery bank. For that you need a charge controller, not a constant voltage.
