The practical design of a single power stage DC-DC power converter with a rated current of 1000 A and nominal power of 10 kW. The achievements consist in the design of a high current power transformer and an output stage with balanced operation which enables the implementation of a simple control circuit. Experimental results are presented for two different layouts
