    Hi all,

    First post here, so play nice!

    Just wondering if anyone could direct me to some general information regarding Cuk Converters. I know the basics DC - DC converter, capacitor storage etc etc but I am struggling to get to grips with the overall theory and function behind this circuit.

    Also, if anyone has any info regarding the modelling of a cuk converter in MATLAB, I would be very greatful!

    Google "CUK Converter" and this interesting URL comes up

    DC-DC Website includes CUK Converter

    The Linear Technology website has numerous application notes on the subject, but best of all you can download a free SPICE simulator that will simulate a CUK design.

    Hope this helps
