Rethinking DC-DC converter design constraints for adaptable systems that target the minimum-energy point

Abstract

This paper explores a new DC-DC converter design constraint for adaptable systems that target the minimum-energy point (MEP). Traditionally, DC-DC converters have regulated to a fixed output voltage over a wide range of input voltages. For energy-constrained systems that target the MEP, regulating them to a fixed voltage is unnecessary since changes in the… (More)
