WEEK 2


Power Stage Design and Documentation
Finish the design of the power stage components and the converter power stage LTspice simulation. Document your steady-state converter design for submission of Milestone 1.




    Graded: Power Stage Design

    WEEK 3


    Preliminary Controller Design



    Develop an averaged model of your power converter. Select a control approach (voltage mode, peak current mode, or average current mode control), and begin the design of the control loop(s) to meet requirements on crossover frequency and maximum closed-loop output impedance. Begin development of LTspice averaged simulation of your controller design.
