Choppers are dc - dc converters, on the basis of output voltage level they are classified as step down chopper (for output voltage less than input one) and step up chopper (for o/p voltage more than input voltage). A buck converter is a step down chopper with a LC filter at the output end in order to reduce the voltage ripples.
