# Duty Cycle Calculator

A Duty Cycle or Power Cycle is the fraction of one period in which a signal or system is active. Thus Duty cycle can be used to describe the percent time of an active signal in an electrical device such as the power switch in a switching power supply. This Calculator is made to calculate the Duty Cycle of the periodic pulse waveform.
A Duty Cycle, also known as a Power Cycle, is the percentage of time during which a signal or system is active. A Step-Down Converter or Buck Converter can produce an output voltage as much as about 80% below the input voltage. This calculator calculates the Duty Cycle of a Step Down Converter.

• Duty Cycle
% A fundamental Buck Converter consists of a controlled switch, a diode, a capacitor, and controlled drive circuitry. The switch cycles ON and OFF at set intervals to control how the input electricity is converted into output. Duty cycle is the total amount of time the switch is activated within a given period. Duty Cycle is commonly expressed as a percentage or a ratio whereas the Output and Input Voltage are expressed in Volts(V).

A Duty Cycle, also known as a Power Cycle, is the percentage of time during which a signal or system is active. A Step-Up Converter produces an output voltage of up to 5 times the input voltage. This Calculator calculates the Duty Cycle of a Step-Up Converter.

% The Duty cycle is defined as the ratio of the turn-on time (TON) to the whole cycle length, which includes the turn-off time (TOFF) plus on time for a Step-Up Converter, and it creates a basic connection between an input voltage and an output voltage. Duty Cycle is commonly represented as a percentage or ratio whereas the Output and Supply Voltage is expressed in Volts(V).

A Duty Cycle, also known as a Power Cycle, is the percentage of time during which a signal or system is active. The Buck-Boost Converter provides a reversed polarity output and enables the output voltage to be above or below the input voltage. This Calculator calculates the Duty Cycle of a Buck-Boost Converter.

% The Cúk converter also provides a reversed polarity output. The advantage of this circuit is its low input and output ripple currents. Duty Cycle is commonly represented as a percentage or ratio whereas the Output and Supply Voltage is expressed in Volts(V).

A Duty Cycle, also known as a Power Cycle, is the percentage of time during which a signal or system is active. The Buck-Boost Converter provides a reversed polarity output and enables the output voltage to be above or below the input voltage. This Calculator calculates the Duty Cycle of a Buck-Boost Converter as per the version given by Dr Grady.

The Duty cycle is the measure of the system’s active time. Duty cycle is commonly expressed as a percentage or a ratio. If a periodic pulse signal spends half of the time ON and the other half OFF, then the signal has a Duty Cycle of 50%. If the percentage is higher than 50%, the signal spends more time in the high state than the low state, and vice versa if the Duty Cycle is less than 50%. Duty Cycle is important in Power Electronic Systems because it relates to peak and average power in the determination of total energy output.
