Principle of operation Ø

Duty ratio (k) = (Ton/ Ton+Toff)

Ø

At Ton, Switch is closed.

Average load voltage, Vo = Vs.k Output voltage varies linearly with “k”. Ton+Toff = chopping period Load voltage can be controlled by changing the duty ratio. As k reduces, current becomes discontinuous. Average load current, Io = Vs.k/R Vo(RMS) = V 2 k = V k s

Principle of operation Ø Ø

Ø Ø

When S is ON à L charges. When ‘S’ is OFF à inductor current flows through diode and load during Toff Vo = Vs+L(di/dt) High value inductor is preferred for lower ripples.

Analysis Energy stored in the inductor W 1, during TON :

W1 = Vs. Is. TON During TOFF, Energy released by the inductor to the load is:

W0 = (Vo-Vs). Is. TOFF At steady state and consider the system is lossless; Vs. Is. TON = (Vo-Vs). Is. TOFF ie, Vo = [(TON +TOFF)/ TOFF] x Vs

Vo = Vs/(1-k)
