Abstract:

A DCDC converter was designed for use on a solar-cell, battery-powered satellite. The design uses step-width modulation rather than the more common pulse-width modulation for regulation. This report contains a description of the various forms of conversion and regulation which are currently in use and show why, for this application, step width modulation is best. The report also contains a complete description of the design of a particular converter included as a design example. Author
