LT8364 frequency compensation and soft start

I want to design a power supply with the following specs:

Vin: 11-13V (12V nominal)

Vout: -7.5V

Iout: 1A


I have followed the data sheet and calculated the key components and I am doing some simulations with LTSpice to get acquainted with it and to have an idea of the expected behavior of the power supply. Please see attachment below.


One difficulty I am having is the data sheet does not provide much infomation about how to calculate the compensation network. I noticed some instability when there is a current step on the output. Is there a way to improve this?


Regarding the soft-start, how is it calculated?


Thanks in advance.
