Keywords: MATLAB, simulation software, integrated circuit, DC-DC converter, driver circuit


The paper focuses exclusively on the analysis of the simulation software and the main parameters of the driver circuits for power electronic converters. A mathematical model of the driver circuit in the Matlab Simunink software environment has been created. This model enables the analysis of the process of frequency formation through the boostrap capacitor and examines the interaction between the protection of the scheme at  ,  and the other digital blocks in the circuit. Considered, additionally, are the basic physical processes behavior of a driver with a similar structure in Infineon designer.
