Due to the importance of DC-DC converters in renewable energy systems, researchers face many challenges and difficulties in designing and analyzing models of DC-DC converters and extracting their dynamic equations that are used to design the systems control unit. In this paper, the Buck converter will be modeled using PLECS software. This software facilitates and speeds up the process of modeling, getting an accurate model, and extracting the transfer function. Without effort and calculation and in a very short time and without errors, unlike other methods, the bod diagram is also extracted using MATLAB software to extract the transfer function.
