Boost converter question

Frequently, boost converters are specified e.g., "5 - 15" DC. What is
the type of load ? If it is capacitive, then it is fine, but not
otherwise. Is it fair to say that the boost converter is meant for
capacitive loads only ?

Presumably it is primarily resistive.

Probably not.  But if you would point out what sort of load you have in
mind and ask what might happen with that sort of load, it may help to
answer your question.

Thinking out loud here (which can lead to a brain fart), if the boost is
discontinuous, do you really care about the load? Certainly resistive
and/or capacitive loads should be fine. I'd have to think about the
effect of an inductive load.

Seems to me you would need to be more specific about the boost scheme used.

Maybe its time for a sci.electronics.schoolwork newsgroup.

   While we're at it.

   news:sci.electronics.idiots would do.  I think there is a limit to
the length of newsgroup names.
