The main focus of this paper is to do simulation, modeling and stability analysis of DC-DC Boost converter for Solar Electric system. The open loop dc-dc boost converter uses 12 Volt dc supply from a solar panel and converts it into 24 Volt dc output which can be used for various solar electric applications for e. g to run a motor using an inverter. The stability analysis includes time domain analysis, frequency domain analysis and pole-zero domain analysis using state space averaging technique. The simulation and stability study is done using MATLAB from its respective graphs obtained from above mentioned domains.
