Boost converter - FEEDBACK


Connect everything as in the schematic below, download and upload the next code to your Arduino and start moving the potentiometer. Observe the otput on the oscilloscope.




Download the FEEDBACK code here:








Or copy the next code

/*
 * This is an example code for a BOOST converter circuit made with arduino + feedback
 * I've used arduino NANO. We have to set the timer of the PWM on pin D3
 * The feedback is connected to A1 and we set the desired voltage with a
 * potnetiometer connected to A0.

   }

   analogWrite(PWM,pwm);  //Finally, we create the PWM signal
