Inverting Buck-Boost Step by Step Design Guide

If you are planning to make your own inverting buck-boost but don’t know where to start, therefore this inverting buck-boost step by step design guide is right for you. A buck-boost converter is a DCDC switching converter that combines the function of a buck and boost converter. Inverting buck-boost is a variant wherein the output is negative with respect to


Quasi Resonant Flyback Primary Current Derivation

In order to derive the primary current of a Quasi resonant flyback, it is important to know the waveform of the current. Quasi resonant flyback primary current is rectangular in shape. It will rise linearly when the flyback switch is ON while drop immediately to zero once the switch is turned OFF. Below figure do more the explanations. Quasi Resonant

Transformer saturation waveform

Quasi Resonant Flyback Transformer Saturation Analysis

One of the very important aspect to look at in dealing with quasi resonant flyback transformer is the saturation. A quasi-resonant flyback transformer is not actually a transformer that we usually know. A transformer will transfer energy from the primary to the secondary at real time. However, the flyback converter will store energy on the primary and then transfer that energy to the secondary somehow. This action makes a flyback transformer prone to saturation if not properly been designed.

MOSFET Reverse Battery Protection

You may not know how to use MOSFET as reverse battery protection. The most common method is using a diode. However, diode voltage drop is high and this will creat issue in low voltage circuits. That is the reason many use MOSFET as reverse battery protection due to its very low on state voltage drop.
