A nonlinear programming technique using penalty function method is employed for the minimum weight design of a half-bridge DC-DC buck power converter. The cost-effective computer-aided approach provides a minimum-weight design down to the details of the component level and concurrently meets all power-circuit performance requirements. Important design insights and guidelines are obtained to readily...
