Current-mode converters are super popular these days.
They have numerous benefits:
- Easy compensation- they are effectively a single pole system (the pole associated with inductor current is pushed out beyond Nyquist) 510 more words

A huge problem in graph theory is to find out if it’s possible to cover or span a given graph with copies of other given graphs. 635 more words
Controller design for a power conversion system is mostly a straightforward matter (see my previous post on Controller Design). Unless there are some interesting circumstances, such as dominant parasitics, very low carrier ratio (which is the ratio of the switching frequency to the closed-loop bandwidth), or highly non-linear operating point, then the design procedure is very simple and could be easily automated, for example, with a MatLab or Python script. 846 more words
