The charging cycle (b), and the discharging cycle (c). The charge store will in general be a non-linear function of the output voltage; so too are the currents. Thus the differential equations we must solve are Charging: dq N (v OUT )/dt = i CH (v OUT ), and Discharging: dq N (v OUT )/dt = i DCH (v OUT ).

These are in general very complicated and difficult to solve by any means. If, however, the charge store can be modeled as a linear capacitor, C L (i.e., q N C L v OUT ), as illustrated below, then we can write, Charging: dv OUT /dt = i CH (v OUT )/C L and Discharging: dv OUT /dt = i DCH (v OUT )/C L These are now differential equations for v

### 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.
