DC to DC Converters with PSpice

DC to DC Converters
1) a) Buck Converter Make the circuit for buck converter using the following parts: VDC (voltage source) VPULSE (voltage source) IRF150 (Swtich) R (Resistance) L (Inductance) C (Capacitance) DIN4002 (Diode) GND_SIGNAL/CAPSYM PARA ( For defining variables and their values) Double click on the parameter PARA and then use new column option for adding the varibles and their values.

b)

Simulate the circuit and get plots for capacitor current and voltages

c)

Similarly get plots for inductor current and voltages

d)

For getting plots for load current at different values of duty cycle use Parametric sweep from Simulation parameters settings and then put Duty Cycle as the parameter name. Specify its start value, end value and increment.

e)

Similarly get plots for load current at different switching frequencies

2) Boost Converter a) Make the circuit for boost converter using the following parts: VDC (voltage source) VPULSE (voltage source) IRF150 (Swtich) R (Resistance) L (Inductance) C (Capacitance) DIN4002 (Diode) GND_SIGNAL/CAPSYM PARA ( For defining variables and their values) Double click on the parameter PARA and then use new column option for adding the varibles and their values.
