Course Objectives

  1. The objective of this course is to educate students in the detailed design, steady state modeling, dynamic modeling, and control design of dc-dc converters.

Course Outcomes

At the end of the course students will be able to
• Design the power stage for various converter topologies based on specifications
• Derive the averaged switch model of the various converter for circuit simulation
• Derive the various transfer functions for different converter topologies operating in both CCM and DCM
• Design the controller for voltage and current mode control
