Switching power converters are nonlinear and time variant systems. The classical controller design for a switching power converter based on the linear model derived by one of conventional modelling methods. However the parameter and load variations and input unregulated voltage are not taken into consideration simultaneously in a controller design. In this paper, we use "input-output feedback linearization" technique for nonlinear control issue, and "Kharitonov, Hif and mu-synthesis" techniques for robust control issue to design of nonlinear and linear robust controllers to access both satisfactory stability and satisfactory performance, even in case of uncertainties and disturbances, for typical fifth-order DC-DC Switching power converter. The stability and performance of the converter and the effectiveness of the proposed controllers are demonstrated by some simulated results. Making use of simulation results, varies comparisons between these controllers and a variety of other controllers are then made, exhibiting the high efficiency of these methods compared to conventional methods.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
