Abstract : The study examines single-ended and push-pull DC to DC converters to choose the type best suited to power central processor macromodules. The saturable base drive type of push-pull converter is chosen, after modification to compensate for possibly disastrous effects of current unbalance in the power transformer. An analysis and design procedure for this improved converter is given, and used to develop a 15 watt version. For macromodules requiring better voltage regulation, a modification of the single-ended type of converter is developed in some detail. (Author)
