A new error amplifier is presented for fast transient response of dc-dc converters. The amplifier has low quiescent current to achieve high power conversion efficiency, but it can supply sufficient current during large-signal operation. Two comparators detect large-signal variations, and turn on extra current supplier if necessary. The amount of extra current is well controlled, so that the system stability can be guaranteed in various operating conditions. The simulation results show that the new error amplifier achieves significant improvement in transient response than the conventional one.
