I feel inadequate because I've been out of school for a while and I'm struggling a bit. I need assistance in tackling a buck converter calculation.
How do I calculate the minimum inductor (L) size for a buck converter so that it is always in continuous conduction mode and peak to peak inductor current variation does not exceed 30% of the average value for all operating conditions. Output current varies at different loads (ie I output = 10A to 25A) Voltage ripple <1%. Attached are my attempts at the question. Honestly I do not feel confident in those attempts.
