The MOSFET's turn on/off curves have a part where the drain current and the voltage across Drain-Source are not zero. That's where most of the switching dissipation happens.
The problem I have is in T1-T2 section (see figure below). If the source voltage (Vin) is constant and the current is flowing through the load (ILOAD), how can we still have Vin across Vds?
We shouldn't have the same current flowing through the load when Vds=0 and Vds=Vin …
Can you please explain what am I missing?
Does this logic differ with a different source type, a different load type … What are the parameters I need to properly predict the MOSFET's behavior when turning on/off, other than the gate driving?
