If the MOSFET gate driver sticks in the on position, then there
is a short circuit through the MOSFET blow MOSFET!
If the load is disconnected during operation, so that I
out
= 0, then
L continues to push power to the right and very quickly charges
C up to a high value (~250V) blow diode and MOSFET!
Before applying power, make sure that your D is at the
minimum, and that a load is solidly connected

To extract maximum power (130W), connect a boost converter between the
panel and the load resistor, and use D to modify the equivalent load
resistance seen by the source so that maximum power is transferred
So, the boost converter

resistance on the
source side
