## Critical value of capacitor for Boost regulator Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Critical capacitor value = Duty Cycle/(2*Natural Frequency*Resistance)
Cc = D/(2*ωn*R)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Duty Cycle- A Duty cycle or power cycle is the fraction of one period in which a signal or system is active.
Natural Frequency - Natural Frequency is the frequency at which a system tends to oscillate in the absence of any driving or damping force. (Measured in Hertz)
Resistance - Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit. Its S.I unit is ohm. (Measured in Ohm)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Duty Cycle: 0.2 --> No Conversion Required
Natural Frequency: 35 Hertz --> 35 Hertz No Conversion Required
Resistance: 10 Ohm --> 10 Ohm No Conversion Required

## Explain Boost regulator?

The boost regulator circuit has many similarities to the buck regulator. However the circuit topology for the boost regulator is slightly different. The fundamental circuit for a boost converter or step up converter consists of an inductor, diode, capacitor, switch and error amplifier with switch control circuitry.
The circuit for the step-up boost converter operates by varying the amount of time in which inductor receives energy from the source.

In the basic block diagram the operation of the boost regulator can be seen that the output voltage appearing across the load is sensed by the sense / error amplifier and an error voltage is generated that controls the switch.
Typically the boost converter switch is controlled by a pulse width modulator, the switch remaining on of longer as more current is drawn by the load and the voltage tends to drop and often there is a fixed frequency oscillator to drive the switching.
