In some cases, a feedforward capacitor can be used across RFBT to improve the load transient response or improve the loop-phase margin. This is especially true when values of RFBT > 100 kΩ are used. Large values of RFBT in combination with the parasitic capacitance at the FB pin can create a small signal pole that interferes with the loop stability. A CFF helps mitigate this effect. Equation 6 can be used to estimate the value of CFF. The value found with Equation 6 is a starting point; use lower values to determine if any advantage is gained by the use of a CFF capacitor. The Optimizing Transient Response of Internally Compensated DC-DC Converters with Feedforward Capacitor Application Report is helpful when experimenting with a feedforward capacitor.
