You can apply PIC using pulse skipping technique, you have fixed pulse width and use ADC to monitor output voltage, if the voltage goes above threshold, you skip pulse. It very simple and effective but poor ripples performance. The advantage of fixed pulse width that the current ramp is the same (under discontinous mode).
The LT model is the real thing.
The key thing is the current ramp that feed into transformer (or inductor). Make sure the core does not get into saturation by excessive current ramp, where magnetic flux density exceed the core specification (Bsat). There is simple equation to use in Philip Ferrite Core datasheet, this is good starting point for transformer/inductor development.
