ELEC 584

Dynamics and Control of Switched Mode Power Supplies

Units: 1.5

Introduction to switch mode power supplies. Detailed analysis of non-isolated converters (Buck, Boost, Buck-boost, Cuk, etc) and isolated converters (Flyback, Forward, Push-pull, Half bridge, Full bridge, Current Source converters, etc). State space averaging technique to model converters. Design of multi-loop controllers (inner current loop and outer voltage loop). Introduction to PWM switch model as an alternative to state space averaging technique. Students will need to complete a project.


  • Credit will be granted for only one of ELEC 584, ELEC 461, ELEC 689 (if taken in the same topic).
