Part Number: TPS40170

Tool/software: WEBENCH® Design Tools

I fill in the reference board data in TPS40KType III Loop Stability.xls but get a different bode plot

Which data I fill in is wrong?

47uF: 23.5uF degrade@25°C   5V  300Khz  ESR:2m ohm

10uF: 4uF degrade25°C   5V  300Khz           ESR:5m ohm

Cout:3x23.5uF+2x4uF     ESR:0.6m ohm

  • If this 5V power source as the middle power, the Cout_CER need consider next DC-DC buck `s Cin?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your detailed information on the schematic and component selection calculator spread sheet. Would you also be able to share the loop response that you are measuring on your board? This will help us understand if there is a pole/zero which is causing an issue.

    Thank you,

                Thanks for you mail
       Limited by instrument we can`t get the real bode plot.
    Accessories is our schematic
    We find Vout oscillating when measure ripple voltage and ripple current by scope. Look like the system is unstable.
    But it show normal when use excel tool fill in the data.
    So we whant to know how data we should key in to more accurate when use this tool
    We get a better ripple voltage (Vripple=50mv)when tune the loopback parameter aimless as follow picture
    But is become more worse(Vripple=1V) when in -40°C ambient temperature
    Is there any advice to us for our power system

    Hello dingtao,

    Is it possible to check responce to a load transient? If the converter is untable, the response will show ringing. The easiest way is to connect the output ot a load resistor through a MOSFET and drive the MOSFET with a pulse generator.

    Regards, Robert

    Hello dingtao,

    My last response was hard to read so I am reposting:

    Is it possible to check response to a load transient? If the converter is unstable, the response will show ringing. The easiest way is to connect the output to a load resistor through a MOSFET and drive the MOSFET with a pulse generator. While it is easier to analyze a Bode plot, the response to a load transient contains most of the same information. If possible, monitor output voltage offset or AC coupled so that detail can be seen and load current.

    Hello,

    As Robert mentioned, is it possible to check the load transient response? This will be the easiest way to measure the stability without a bode plot.

    Thank you,
