Learning Optimal Synthesis of Voltage Regulators using PSPICE

Learning Optimal Synthesis of Voltage Regulators using PSPICE Purpose – The paper aims to present a learning environment for optimal synthesis of voltage regulator circuits (LEOS‐VRC) using PSPICE simulator. Design/methodology/approach – LEOS‐VRC supports a database with voltage regulator circuits edited as projects in PSPICE compatible format and a methodology for optimal synthesis. The methodology is based on the estimation of multiple voltage regulator circuits' realizations over a given specification, through comparative study in PSPICE, using a set of predefined specific electrical characteristics, which values are determined from simulation waveforms. LEOS‐VRC allows integrating the voltage regulator circuit in a power supply system through adding transformer, rectifier and control stages. Both linear and switch‐mode power supplies are considered. Findings – The methodology and examples proposed illustrate the efficiency of LEOS‐VRC for teaching and self‐education in the area of power supply circuit design. Research limitations/implications – In future LEOS‐VRC database will be enlarged with new voltage regulator circuit topologies and new controller circuits. Practical implications – LEOS‐VRC is suitable for students in electronics and designers of power supply circuits. Originality/value – With LEOS‐VRC students become familiar with multisolution synthesis. By analyzing the complex behaviour of the power supply system and applying comparative study and optimization criteria, they can make a motivated selection of an optimal voltage regulator design solution for a concrete application. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png COMPEL: The International Journal for Computation and Mathematics in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The methodology is based on the estimation of multiple voltage regulator circuits' realizations over a given specification, through comparative study in PSPICE, using a set of predefined specific electrical characteristics, which values are determined from simulation waveforms. LEOS‐VRC allows integrating the voltage regulator circuit in a power supply system through adding transformer, rectifier and control stages. Both linear and switch‐mode power supplies are considered. Findings – The methodology and examples proposed illustrate the efficiency of LEOS‐VRC for teaching and self‐education in the area of power supply circuit design.

Practical implications – LEOS‐VRC is suitable for students in electronics and designers of power supply circuits.
