Investigation of losses in pulse width modulation converters
This thesis presents an analysis on DC-to-DC converters using the switch-mode technology which produces very high switching speed and very high power handling capabilities. It introduces a steady state analysis of the buck, boost, and buck-boost converters operating in both continuous conduction mode and discontinuous conduction mode, as well as a discussion of some other isolated switch-mode converters, mainly the flyback, forward, push-pull, half and full-bridge converters. Furthermore, the thesis investigates the effect of the non-idealities of some of the components, such as the inductor series resistor, Equivalent Series Resistor (ESR) of the output capacitor, diode drop voltage, transistor switching and conducting losses. Spread-sheet utilization will be used to show the effect of these components on the voltage gain of these converters.
