PWM buck converters usually use a type-III error amplifier. Since this amplifier has a big capacitor with slow slew rate, they can generate an unintended large overshoot/undershoot at the output when a large load current change occurs. They can also respond slowly by varying the reference voltage. In order to increase battery lifetime, power supplies require a various range of load current and output voltage. PWM buck converter also should have a characteristic of both fast load response and reference tracking. This paper surveys a few recent techniques for reducing the settling time, and discusses their merits and limitations.
