The paper investigates the effect of unity-gain output-current-feedforward in a peak-current-mode-controlled (PCMC) buck converter. A consistent theoretical basis is provided showing that the unity-gain feedforward can improve significantly the load invariance and transient performance of a PCMC buck converter. The nonidealities associated to the scheme would, however, deteriorate the obtainable level of invariance. The nonidealities can be maintained at acceptable level, and therefore, the scheme would provide a viable method to reduce significantly the load interactions as well as improve the load-transient response. The theoretical predictions are supported with comprehensive experimental evidence both at frequency and time domain as well as comparisons between three different buck converters
