Lab 8 – Power Conversion: Buck Converter Pr o ce du r e The following are the values of the parameters used in the experiment. Note that both the voltage probe and the current probe have scaling factors when viewed on the oscilloscope (voltage probe is adjustable; current probe is 100mV = 1A). L = 100 µH C 1 = 330 µF C 2 = 83 µF 1. We will use the function generator to create the variable duty cycle PWM gate signal for the MOSFET. Create a 0-10V, 20kHz square wave with variable duty cycle, press OUTPUT button. Look at the signal on the oscilloscope to verify you have done this correctly. 2. Assemble the circuit as shown in Figure 1 . The diode D in Figure 1 is the body diode of the other MOSFET on the switch module that isn’t being given a switching input, as shown in Figure 4 . Please get the circuit checked by TA. D G D S Figure 4 – Diagram showing that the body-diode of a MOSFET can be used simply as a diode when no gate signal is applied 3. Before connecting Vs to the circuit, measure the voltage from the DC supply with a multimeter to ensure it is set to 5V. Now power the circuit with a DC

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
