Coupled inductor design
This paper gives a practical example of the design of an offline switching power supply. The half-bridge topology is used with current mode control. Until recently this was considered an unstable combination, but a simple compensation circuit is now available and is described in this paper. This power supply has two outputs and uses a coupled inductor. Using a coupled inductor with a current mode controlled buck type topology is especially helpful, as will be explained later.
