Using Synchronous Buck Converter Chip to Transfer Energy

A project log for Low-Cost Non-Dissipative Active Battery Balancer

This cell balancer will transfer electrical charges from a strong cell to a weak cell. Ideal for electric vehicles.

This is the progress for today. Some modifications are added to the MP2307 board to convert the buck converter into a voltage follower. This means that the output voltage now can be set using a voltage reference instead of a resistive divider.

i.e. before modification, the voltage is set by 0.925v*(1+R2/R1), after modification, the output voltage is equal to voltage reference.

I will upload the schematic soon after I have fully optimise it.
