AbstractRinging of an inductor current occurs in a DC-DC BUCK converter working in DCM when current falls to zero. The oscillations are the source of interferences and can have a significant influence on output voltage. This paper discusses the influence of the inductor current ringing on output voltage. It is proved through examples that the oscillations can change actual value of duty a cycle in a way that makes the output voltage difficult to predict.
