This is part 4 of my video tutorial series about Switched Mode Power Supplies. This part deals with the idea behind the Boost Converter. The video also explains the principle of car ignition systems.
As I will explain in the video about flyback converters, the ignition system is based on the idea of a "flyback voltage". This flyback voltage can be multiplied by using a secondary winding with a bigger number of turns. That secondary winding makes teh ignition system technically a "flyback converter". But since the boost converter and the flyback converter are based on the same idea, the example is well suited for the boost converter too.
