A switch mode power supply is a type of electric power converter that converts a source of direct current from one voltage level to another. In this DC-DC converter, the output current flow depends on the input power signal, circuit topologies used and on the pulse width modulation with an adjustable duty cycle to drive the switching elements. This Pulse width modulation signal is generated by a microcontroller according to the voltage expected at the output. These microcontrollers operate on a certain clock pulse and specific programming which introduces a certain amount of delay in computing ultimately hampering the performance of the system. The proposed system implements the computational capabilities of an artificial neural network over basic electronics circuits to give superior performance by obtaining negligible latency, least settling time and high stability.
