Abstract

By the application of well-known circuit analysis techniques, this paper develops an intuitive approach to model the steady state regime of the three DC/DC power converters’ basic topologies (buck, boost and buck-boost). The developed approach can be considered new, realistic, accurate, general and practical. The approach is new because it is not present in the literature; realistic because it considers the main non-idealities of the different passive and active components that make up the converters; accurate because its theoretical results fit properly to those obtained in actual converters; general because it is valid for the three basic topologies; and practical because its applicability is easy and immediate from the data sheets of the converters’ components (no measurements are needed). The developed model transforms a complex system with strong non-idealities in the form of distributed parameters, in a simple and intuitive scheme of concentrated parameters (just three), which accurately reflects the actual behavior of the three basic converters’ topologies. The characteristic parameters of the model and its main relationships are determined analytically. The quality of the developed approach has been tested in the paper and can be considered excellent.
