Developing DC-DC Converter Control with Simulink

Learn how to model and simulate a DC-DC converter in Simulink® and Simscape Electrical™. Use the simulation model to size passive components and simulate the converter in continuous and discontinuous conduction modes. Estimate nonlinear switching dynamics of the MOSFET and calculate dissipative power losses of the converter. Use input-output simulation data to automatically tune PID controller gains. Implement a digital controller on a Texas Instruments™ TMS320F28035 microcontroller by automatically generating code from a Simulink model.
