Robust Control Design for a ZCS Converter

Bevrani, Hassan, Mitani, Yasunori, & Tsuji, Kiichiro (2002) Robust Control Design for a ZCS Converter. In 28th Annual Conference of the Industrial Electronics Society (IECON 02), 5-8 Nov. 2002, Spain.


Resonant converters have a highly nonlinear and time-varying nature. Any change in operating conditions leads to significant changes in system dynamical model so that desired performance and even stability are lost. This situation is mainly due to variation in load and line voltage. Taking into consideration the uprising need for high-quality resonant power converters comes the need for modern and systemic approaches to the control of these systems. In this paper to access both satisfactory stability and satisfactory performance, such as reduced sensitivity to line voltage and load variations, satisfactory disturbance rejection, reduced output impedance, and attenuated transfer from input to output, we use the mu-synthesis technique for a Zero-Current Switching (ZCS) converter.

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.
