Application: Boost converter (Patent ID: US20230336079A1)

The patent filed by Acer Inc. describes a boost converter that includes various components such as a bridge rectifier, inductor, current compensation circuit, power switch element, output stage circuit, feedback compensation circuit, and an MCU. The boost converter is designed to monitor and limit the duty cycle of a clock voltage, and when the duty cycle reaches a maximum threshold value, the MCU enables the current compensation circuit to provide additional current, thereby increasing the output power of the boost converter.

The boost converter also includes a bridge rectifier with multiple diodes, a supply circuit with resistors and capacitors, a current compensation circuit with transistors and inductors, a power switch element with a transistor, an output stage circuit with diodes and capacitors, and a feedback compensation circuit with a linear optical coupler. The feedback compensation circuit generates a feedback voltage according to the output voltage, and the MCU generates the clock voltage based on this feedback voltage. Additionally, the MCU comprises a comparator and a detection and control circuit to monitor the duty cycle of the clock voltage and adjust the control voltage accordingly.
