In this paper, reliability evaluation is proposed for some of the most famous impedance network‐based DC‐DC boost converters. Markov reliability approach is used to evaluate the reliability of the converters. Also, some other factors such as components' failure rates, reliability functions, and mean time to failures are introduced and evaluated. Detailed explanations for the evaluation methods of the mentioned factors are also provided in the context of the paper. In addition to the mathematical analysis, numerical calculations are also done through the simulation results of the converters. Simulations are done in PSCAD/EMTDC. Finally, a numerical and graphical reliability comparison is provided for the mentioned converters. The purpose of this paper is to give a comprehensive reliability evaluation and comparison for some of the most popular impedance network‐based DC‐DC converters. In addition, this paper gives a detailed reliability analysis that can be used in reliability assessment of all types of power electronic converters, so it can help the researchers to consider reliability calculations into their designing.
