    why in most application, CCM is used? is it more efficient?
    and why do we use DCM in low load application. And can someone explain to me what loop compensation is ?

    CCM is simpler to design for. In DCM the conversion factor becomes load dependent.

    DCM happens in low current situations, so in low loads you get low currents and fall into DCM.

    Loop compensation means adding a feedback controller to get a desired loop characteristic (frequency response).
