Sorry, you need a Java-enabled browser to see the simulation.

This circuit uses some diodes and capacitors to generate 28 V from an 15 V input signal. The current from the input flows through the upper diode in one direction, charging the upper capacitor; the diode prevents the capacitor from being discharged when the input signal goes negative. The bottom diode/capacitor pair works the same way for the negative portion of the input cycle.
