## What is a Buck converter?

The input voltage source is connected to a controllable solid state device which operates as a switch. The solid state device can be a Power MOSFET or IGBT. Thyristors are not used generally for DC-DC converters because to turn off a Thyristor in a DC-DC circuit requires another commutation which involves using another Thyristor, whereas Power MOSFET and IGBT can be turned off by simply having the voltage between the GATE and SOURCE terminals of a Power MOSFET, or, the GATE and COLLECTOR terminals of the IGBT go to zero.
The second switch used is a diode. The switch and the diode are connected to a low-pass LC filter which is appropriately designed to reduce the current and voltage ripples. The load is a purely resistive load.
The input voltage is constant and the current through load is also constant. The load can be seen as current source.
