Actual output voltage waveform of buck converter
Buck converter containing practical low-pass filter Actual output voltage waveform v(t) = V + vripple(t)

The small ripple approximation
v(t) = V + vripple(t) In a well-designed converter, the output voltage ripple is small. Hence, the waveforms can be easily determined by ignoring the ripple:

5.2 Composite DC/DC converters and connection of multiple DC/DC converters
A current-reversible chopper Bridge chopper (H-bridge DC/DC converter) Multi-phase multi-channel DC/DC converters

5.2.1 A current reversible chopper
Electronics Can be considered as a combination of a Buck and a Boost Can realize two-quadrant ( I & II) operation of DC motor: forward motoring, forward braking Power 31

Bridge chopper (H-bridge chopper)
Can be considered as the combination of two current-reversible choppers. Can realize 4-quadrant operation of DC motor.

Multi-phase multi-channel DC/DC converter
Current output capability is increased due to multi-channel paralleling. Ripple in the output voltage and current is reduced due to multi- channel paralleling. Ripple in the input current is reduced due to multi-phase paralleling.

5.3 Isolated DC to DC converters (Indirect DC to DC converters )
Inverter Transformer Rectifier Filter DC input AC DC output High frequency Isolation Reasons to use indirect DC to DC structure Necessary isolation between input and output In some cases isolated multiple outputs are needed The ratio of input and output voltage is far away from 1 Power semiconductor devices usually used Inverter part: Power MOSFETs, IGBTs Rectifier part: Fast recovery diodes, Schottky diodes, Synchronous rectifiers

Classification of isolated DC to DC converters
According to whether transformer current is uni-direction or bi-directional Single-ended converters Forward converter Flyback converter Isolated DC to DC converters Double-ended converters Half bridge Push-pull Full bridge

5.3.1 Forward converter Simple, low cost

5.3.3 Half bridge converter Cost higher than forward and flyback converter Bi-polar transformer current, up to several kilowatts

5.3.4 Push-pull converter Cost higher than forward and flyback converter Center-tapped transformer
