Switched-Mode Power Supply Simulation with SPICE:

February 2, 2018, Phoenix, Arizona: In a reprint of Steve Sandler’s classic technical book, PWM models and power supply simulation solutions are described in depth–with special attention paid to practical magnetic components. All common topologies are discussed, including linear, buck and flyback converters. Practical guidance is given for EMI/RFI filtering and magnetics design and analysis. Most of the book’s code (available to book purchasers) will run, unaltered, on all of popular SPICE versions, including PSpice, LTspice, and Tina. Sometimes maligned, SPICE can provide very accurate results that correlate with real circuit…
