At the end of the first part of the training dedicated to the analysis of the SMPS topology analysis, the students will be able to master correctly all the equations and the main notions attached to the study of a DC/DC converter by showing that they are able to analyze the state-variable waveforms in steady-state to determine the performances of the system.


After the second part dedicated to the study of the voltage and current control loops, the students will be able to determine the type of controller required to regulate the state-variables of the system by showing that they are able to compute the pole and zero of the open-loop transfer function when it is necessary to insure the stability of a SMPS-type DC/DC converter.


The course is divided into 3 distinct parts :

- 1) the study of the Buck converter topology (waveform analysis, CCM vs DCM, basic voltage control loop),

- 2) the study of the Boost converter topology (waveform analysis, CCM vs DCM, basic voltage control loop including a peak-current detection method)

- 3) the small-signal analysis of a Sample-Mode-Power-Supply: introduction to the state-variable analysis method, transfer function identification, design of the controller to insure the stability of the regulated system.

Practical work session using Cadence-Pspice simulator helps to illustrate the different concepts discussed in the course, namely: understand the shape of the several waveforms observed with the Buck converter, be able to design of a simple voltage control loop and measure the phase margin.
