Fundamentals of Power Electronics – Buck-Boost Converter Basics

Here, we introduce the buck-boost converter topology and it’s two switching operation modes. We derive the relationship between the input voltage, average output voltage, and active switch duty ratio.

Fundamentals of Power Electronics – Switched Inductor Operation

Introduction to switched mode power supplies and how the inductor can operate in the power supply. The voltage over the inductor is generally switched between two different voltages and it can generally operate in continuous conduction mode (CCM) boundary (or critical) conduction mode (BCM) and discontinuous conduction mode.
