A modified buck converter is studied in this paper. Its steady state characteristics, small signal models when it operates in either continuous conduction mode or discontinuous conduction mode are discussed. Coupled inductor techniques can be applied to this topology. It is also found that the modified converter has faster dynamic response than the conventional buck converter. In particular, this topology can overcome the high inrush current
