Fully updated to incorporate new SPICE features and capabilities, this practical guide explains, step by step, how to simulate, test, and improve switch-mode power supplydesigns. Detailed formulas with founding equations are included. Based on the author's continued research and in-depth, handson work in the field, this revised resource offers a collection of the latest SPICE solutions to the most difficult problem facing power supply designers: creating smaller, more heat-efficient power supplies in shorter design cycles.

NEW to this edition:

  • Complete analysis of rms currents for the three basic cells in CCM and DCM
  • PWM switch at work in the small-signal analysis of the DCM boost and the QR flyback
  • OTA-based compensators
  • Complete transistor-level TL431 model
  • Small-signal analysis of the borderline-operated boost PFC circuit operated in voltage or current mode
  • All-over power phenomena in QR or fixed-frequency discontinuous/continuous flyback converters
  • Small-signal model of a QR flyback converter
  • Small-signal model of the active clamp forward converter operated in voltagemode control
  • Electronic content—design templates and examples available online

    Switch-Mode Power Supplies: SPICE Simulations and Practical Designs, Second Edition, covers:

    Small-signal modeling * Feedback and ciontrol loops * Basic blocks and generic switched models * Nonisolated converters * Off-line converters * Flyback converters * Forward converters * Power factor correction
