Design of a 22V∼32V-to-15V DC/DC Power Converter under Input and Load Variations

Zheng Zhang Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, MIT Email: z zhang@mit.edu Submitted on May 16, 2012

Abstract—This report presents the design procedure of a buck converter, which converts a 22V∼32V DC input voltage to a 15V DC output, under a resistive load variation from 1.5Ω to 4.5Ω. Detailed analysis and simulation results, as well as electrical and thermal device specifications are provided. A voltage-mode PI controller is designed to stabilize the averaged system under input and load variations. The worst-case efficiency of this buck converter is above 94.59%.

Besides, it is required that the junction temperature of the power devices should remain sufficiently (at least 25◦ C) below the allowable maximum junction temperature, while the ambient temperature is in the range of −20◦ C∼ +50◦ C. It is also required that the temperature rise of inductor should be below 50◦ C. II. T OP -L EVEL D ESIGN V IEW As shown in Fig. 1, assume that the duty ratio of the switch is d and the input DC voltage is V1 , then the output DC voltage can be decided as Vo = dV1 . (1) And the power at the output stage is Po = Vo2 /Ro . (2)

1) The switching frequency shall be high enough, since as fsw gets higher the ripples in iLo and vo become smaller; 2) The switching frequency cannot be arbitrarily high. As fsw increases, the switching losses in the power devices will increases. Meanwhile, the core power loss and loss due to the skin effects also become more significant as fsw increases. The following main problems need to be addressed in our design: 1) The output stage should be designed such that the output voltage has small ripples. 2) An input EMI filter should be added between the switch and the input source, to ensure that the current flowing through the input source has small ripples. 3) The circuit should be designed such that this DC buck converter can work well under load variations from 1.5Ω to 4.5Ω (or vise versa). 4) The power and passive devices and thermal devices should be carefully selected such that designed circuit works well under parasitic and thermal effects. 5) As the input voltage change in the range of 22 ∼ 32 V, the duty ratio d should be tuned according to the input level to ensure Vo stay at 15 V. This requires us to design a feedback controller to form a stable close-loop system such that the output stays at the nominal value. III. C IRCUIT S CHEMATIC D ESIGN A. Output Stage The output stage is designed under two constraints: 1) The inductor Lo should be large enough to make the current rippels of iLo small enough;

Since Vo = 15 V, and Po = 50 ∼ 150 W, the load resistance Ro can vary in the range of 1.5 ∼ 4.5Ω. And accordingly, the averaged current through the inductor shall vary in the range of 10 3 ∼ 10 A. In our design, we see V1 = 27 V and d = 5 9 as the nominal design. The switching frequency is set as fsw = 200 KHz based on the following tradeoffs:

we can model the output stage by a current source and get an equivalent circuit for analyzing the input current of this converter. as shown in the left part of Fig.4A.ac is odd in time and its n-th Fourier coefficient can be easily obtained as 2IL .5I Lo. we can add a damped LC filter.
