DC/DC power converter open loop design

This design converts 288V DC to 14V DC, using a logic switch and a logic clock. It can be used to check the duty cycle, transformer, inductor, and capacitance selection. Voltage and current ripples are measured through simulation.

Circuit Snapshot:

Refer to the attached snapshot "dcdc_open_loop.png".
