This course is an introduction course to switched-mode power converters. The first part of the course treats basic circuit operation, including steady-state converter modeling and analysis, switch realization, discontinuous conduction mode, and transformer-isolated converters. Next, converter control systems are covered, including ac modeling of converters using averaged methods, small-signal transfer functions, and classical feedback loop design. Finally, current programmed control is discussed, including: oscillation for D > 0.5, a simple first-order model, and a more accurate model.
