Abstract: For DC voltage amplification, the operational amplifier is mostly used in the non-inverting configuration. In this case, the DC voltage amplification is done using a negative capacitance converter. Since the feedback capacitor acts as an open circuit for DC signal, it provides isolation between input and output. The amplified voltage level is limited by the breakdown voltage of the transistors used to build the op-amp and further the insulation breakdown limit of the Miller capacitor.

By making use of new technologies such as silicon carbide technology, the breakdown voltage of transistors can be made higher even 1.2 KV and combined with high voltage engineering for capacitive insulation such as polymer capacitors, this can become a huge breakthrough in electric power engineering. Additionally, it can be used as a effective DC source for electric vehicles. The nominal voltage used in hybrid vehicles ranges from 100V to 200V.For electric-only vehicles, the required voltage is as high as 800V.The simulations are done using MIT Circuit sandbox, an open source circuit simulation tool. Keywords: DC amplifier, Op-amp, negative capacitance, silicon carbide and high voltage insulation.
