PART 1 BREAKUP OF LOSSES AND ANALYSIS
Introduction The first step we have taken toward systematically understanding the topic of Buck efficiency is to write a detailed Mathcad model of virtually each significant loss. We are deliberately ignoring smaller losses; those that we know barely affect overall efficiency. For example, we know that the RMS current in the output capacitors is very small in a Buck, and we have disregarded that specific loss component. We have also disregarded c…
