Analysis and design of multiple-output forward converter with weighted voltage control
MetadataShow full item record
This work presents the modeling and analyses of multiple-output forward converters with weighted voltage control. Based upon the analyses, the systematic design methodologies and design tools are provided. A power stage de model including all the major parasitics, which are detrimental to the output voltages, is detived. A nonlinear programming based design tool is developed to search for the weighting factors. Five methods of stacking secondaries to improve cross-regulation are presented, and the improvement of cross-regulation is quantified. A small-signal model of the multiple-output converters with coupled output filter inductors and weighted voltage control is established. The small-signal characteristics are studied, and the model shows that the system behavior is very sensitive to the coupling coefficient, which has been reported, but never been quantified. The pole-zero interlaced condition is derived. A current-mode control small-signal model is also presented, which can predict all the observed phenomena of current-mode control. Compensator design is discussed for different types of power stage transfer functions for both voltage-mode and current-mode control.
