1. Question 1 needs to be submitted as Assignment 1

Fig. 1 shows a linear switching network. For this circuit, answer the following
(a) If at t=0, the switch is moved from 2 to 1, find an expression for the inductor current
and output voltage for t>0. If Vin=10 V, L=20 uH, C=300 uF, and R=0.5 , plot the iL
and vo as a function of time using Matlab or Mathcad.
(b) At t=5us, the switch is moved back to 2 from 1. Plot iL and vo for t>10 us using
Matlab or Mathcad.
(c) If (a) and (b) repeats for 10 cycles, with a switching cycle of 10 us, plot the iL and vo
using Matlab or Mathcad.
(c) Verify your results using PSPICE simulation. Use a model of IRLR024N (Mosfet) as
your switches.
2. A DC/DC boost converter operates at D=0.6. The voltage across the inductor is as
shown. Find the input voltage and output voltage of the converter.

3. The gate to source voltage for the n-Mosfet in a buck converter is as shown. What is
the output voltage of the converter at t=0. Assume the following parameters. Mosfet
Rdson=10 m, Inductor DCR=2 m, Diode forward voltage=0.7 V.
6V

0V

t=0

4. A converter needs to be driven in an open loop fashion as shown below. The max. &
min. of the PWM saw-tooth carrier waveform are 5 V and 0 V. A 5 V supply is
available. Design a resistive circuit that limits the duty ratio (d) between 0.2 and 0.6.
The current drawn by this circuit should be less than1 mA.
