ABSTRACT. The tracking of a periodic signal by the DC-to-DC converter is studied in this paper. The special case of a full bridge boost converter is considered. The boost converter is a nonminimum phase system which is difficult to control. A disturbed load resistance parameter has been taken into account. Furthermore, the periodic signals may be tracked by the output voltage taking into account a number of appropriate restrictive conditions. Semi-infinite optimization techniques are used to solve the constrained power loss minimization problem.

1. Introduction

Switched mode DC-DC power converters are used in a wide range of power supply systems. Sliding control allows the tracking of a periodic sine output wave in a boost converter which is a nonminimum phase system, i.e., the system has unstable ...
