This paper presents a theoretical and experimental study of the hybrid sources capabilities to improve both the dynamic response and the stability of switching power supplies. The hybrid sources are composed by both, a linear and a switching source connected in parallel. The reached improvements have been possible without affecting, significantly, the efficiency of the whole circuit. This solution is checked in low voltage sources. The obtained experimental results show that these power supplies present high dynamical performance, and therefore they can be used to feed digital signal processors and microprocessors.
