Background/Objectives: In this paper we study Two pole–Two phase and Four pole-Three phase Multidevice interleaved DC/DC boost converter with FPGA controller to achieve high performance for Aircraft Electrical systems where there is need of high efficiency, high thermal capability with power density. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Interleaved DC/DC boost converter has been usage in the power electronics circuits due to its inherent quality of huge reduction in source current ripple and output ripple voltage due to the interleaving of the input supply and multi devices. Findings: Multidevice Interleaved DC/DC boost converter has found huge applications due to its advantages like reduced size due to reduction in contribution current and output voltage ripple thereby reducing size of filter machineries. In addition to above advantages low EMI and low electric hassle in switching can be achieved. Application/Improvements: In this study employ Electric Motor to power the Aircraft and Batteries to supply power during Night flights connect via Bi-directional DC/DC converter.
