The circuit shown is meant to supply a resistive load $${R_L}$$ from two separate $$DC$$ voltage sources. The switches $$S1$$ and $$S2$$ are controlled so that only one of them is ON at any instant. $$S1$$ is turned on for $$0.2$$ $$ms$$ and $$S2$$ is turned on for $$0.3$$ $$ms$$ in a $$0.5$$ $$ms$$ switching cycle time period. Assuming continuous conduction of the inductor current and negligible ripple on the capacitor voltage, the output voltage $${V_0}$$ (in Volt) across $${R_L}$$ is __________.
