About negative input impedance
Ishtiyaq   8/6/2014 4:05:10 AM
Dear Robert Kollman,

I have read your article and found it really helpfull for myself. However, I would like to know one thing here.

While calculating negative input impedance of the converter you wrote:

Negative input impedance

This voltage-current line has a slope that essentially defines the dynamic impedance of the power supply. The slope of this line is the negative of the input voltage divided by the input current. That is, with Pin = V • I, we have V = Pin/I; and so dV/dI = –Pin/I2 or dV/dI ˜ –V/I.

This approximation is a bit of an over-simplification because the control loop impacts the frequency response of the input impedance. But many times, this simplification is good enough when current-mode control is involved.

Could you please explain that in the presence of Current-mode control, how this simple assumption is good enough?

Thank you very much.

Regards.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
