In a positive buck-boost converter, inductor current and capacitor voltage can be decoupled which may improve system stability. In fact for a specific level of capacitor voltage, the inductor current can be adjusted at different levels and can be utilized to increase the robustness of the converter against input voltage and load disturbances. But when demand is a fast response with respect to step change in reference voltage, this topology needs to be modified. In this paper, a family of topologies based on a positive buck boost converter are presented which have a fast response and bidirectional power flow capability. This feature leads to some applications in hybrid vehicle systems and telecommunications. Simulations have been carried out to validate the robustness and stability of the proposed converters.

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.
