A high-efficiency slope compensator (HSC) is presented to achieve power reduction in current-mode control and provide input-independent load condition identification for mode switch in hybrid PWM/PFM system. That is, according to load condition, an adaptive mode transition can be decided by the HSC circuit and not varied by the variation of input voltage. Therefore, for a hybrid PWM/PFM system, the power conversion efficiency can be kept high over a wide load range. Besides, the pulse-ramp slope compensation technique prevents the current-mode DC-DC converter from having the sub-harmonic oscillation problem and reduces power dissipation of the slope compensator. Simulation results show that the mode transition is accurately decided at the optimum point without being affected by the variation of input voltage. The power conversion efficiency is improved about 5% in PWM/PFM transition region.
