    Hello everybody!
    I have a problem with boost converter. I can get max 90V from 20V source and then all circuit colapses and output mosfet get shorted. Output voltage changes in dependence on choke but i could never get 220V from 20V source.
    Also, audible noise form choke is present while adjusting output voltage,
    Do you have idea what's going on here?

    Without a circuit diagram, I have no idea what are you talking about. From your description, are you using low frequency oscillation for your converter, like <1 KHz ?

    BTW, what is your load?

    Measure the inductor current. See if it's saturating when increasing the PWM pulse width. If that's the case increase inductance or frequency.

    And yes, we need a schematic.
