TY - JOUR TI - A new averaged switch model including conduction losses for PWM converters operating in discontinuous inductor current mode AU - Corina Mirela Ivan AU - Lascu Dan AU - Popescu Viorel JN - Facta universitatis - series: Electronics and Energetics PY - 2006 VL - 19 IS - 2 SP - 219 EP - 230 PT- Article AB- In this paper a new PWM switch model including conduction losses, for Discontinuous Inductor Current Mode (DICM) dc-dc converters is developed. Compared to other models for DICM, the proposed model is more accurate, its derivation considering the correct, exponential waveforms for the currents and voltages. The proposed model is verified through PSpice simulation. A possibility of simplifying the model is also presented and verified through PSpice simulation.
