Abstract: This paper presents the analysis and comparison of Capacitor Diode Voltage Multiplier fed with a high and low frequency voltage source. The characteristics of this multiplier has been studied using PSpice simulations. The behavior of the multiplier especially the multipliers response time has been studied, when it is fed with high frequency voltage source and a low frequency voltage source. The voltage multiplier fed with a high frequency voltage results in an appreciable reduction in the size, weight and the price of the power supply developed using such a voltage multiplier.
