Abstract
This letter analyzes how the efficiency of boost dc/dc converters operating in burst mode under light-load conditions can be improved by an appropriate selection of the inductor current that transfers energy from the input to the output. A theoretical analysis evaluates the main power losses (fixed, conduction, and switching losses) involved in such converters, and how do they depend on the inductor current. This analysis shows that there is an optimal value of this current that causes minimum l...
