Analysis of Output Characteristics of Buck Converter


This Article introduced the concept, topology and function of voltage type Buck converter, built a small signal model, analysis the negative impedance character of converter, then simulated a Buck-type DC/ DC through MATLAB, observed the dynamic response of converter to pulse-type power load, verified the small-signal theoretical by simulation, lay the foundation for analyzing DC system stability.
