System-level simulation with Simulink® speeds up digital control development for DC-DC converters, including buck converters, boost converters, and single-ended primary-inductor converter (SEPICs), that must control voltage over a range of operating conditions.
Read this white paper to learn how to develop a power converter digital controller using modeling and simulation. Using a SEPIC example, you can learn how to use Simulink to:
- Model passive circuit elements, power semiconductors, and varying power sources and loads
- Simulate the converter in continuous and discontinuous conduction modes
- Determine power losses and simulate the thermal behavior of the converter
- Tune the controller to meet design requirements such as rise time, overshoot, and settling time
- Generate C code from the controller model for implementation on TI’s C2000™ microcontroller
