This paper presents a novel parallel boost converter using switched capacitors The switches are controlled not only by periodic clock but also by voltage-mode threshold that is a key to realize strong stability, fast transient and variable output. The dynamics is described by a piecewise linear equation, the mapping procedure is applicable and the system operation can be analyzed precisely.
