Fundamentals of Buck Converter Efficiency (.PDF)

To illustrate the factors that play a role in a buck converter’s efficiency, the Table below lists the equations used to estimate the most significant power losses. The parameters to minimize for high efficiency can be quickly determined utilizing these equations. The dominant losses in a buck converter design depend on the specific operating conditions of the circuit, and hence, it is important to perform
