Statement 1: The current at which the Buck SMPS moves into Discontinuous Conduction Mode is not fixed and changes due to different factors.
From what I understood, a Buck SMPS enters discontinuous mode when the output current reaches below the critical current which is equal to half the output ripple current? How can it then enter discontinious mode at different currents and what are these different factors that effect this current
Statement 2: For a fixed output current From a Vout/Vin VS duty cycle plot, You can obtain two different graphs of the SMPS in discontinuous and continuous mode. You can then see when it will enter discontinuous mode
I am currently at home self teaching myself this and do not have access to do this but If I did how exactly would I push the SMPS into discontinuos and continuous when the output current is fixed?
