Pulse Regulation control scheme is presented and applied to BIFRED converter operating in discontinuous conduction mode (DCM). In contrast to the conventional control techniques, the principal idea of Pulse Regulation is to regulate the output voltage using a series of high and low power pulses generated by the current of the input inductor. In this paper, analysis of BIFRED converter operating in DCM is presented. The basic idea of Pulse Regulation as well as the estimation of the output voltage ripple is introduced. Experimental results on a prototype converter are also demonstrated.
