The converter was designed such that the cycle-by-cycle limiting will begin once the output current reaches roughly 35 A. Given that the peak inductor current at maximum load current is 24.25 A, this provides about 45% margin before an overcurrent event is detected by the controller. The primary side current is being sensed at CS_ILIM, so the turns ratio must be accounted for when calculating the necessary value of the sense resistor. Likewise, a current sense transformer with turns ratio of 1:100 is used to step down the primary current. The following calcuations are used to arrive at the value of RCS that translates to the desired output overcurrent level.
Based on the calculation, a 7.5-Ω resistor was selected for RCS.
