DC-DC Converter

Functional block diagram


Stepping Down a DC Voltage

Avg. output voltage is controlled by controlling the switch on-off duration. If


constant switching freq. is employed, the output voltage can be varied by
varying switch ‘on’ duration. The method is termed as PWM switching and
duty ratio, D is defined as ton/ Tswitching

A simple approach that shows the evolution
