Cross voltage control with inner hysteresis current control for multi-output boost converter

Nami, Alireza, Zare, Firuz, Ghosh, Arindam, & Blaabjerg, Frede (2009) Cross voltage control with inner hysteresis current control for multi-output boost converter. In Proceedings of European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications (EPE), IEEE, Palau de Congressos de Barcelona, Barcelona, pp. 1-10.


Multi-output boost (MOB) converter is a novel DC-DC converter unlike the regular boost converter, has the ability to share its total output voltage and to have different series output voltage from a given duty cycle for low and high power applications. In this paper, discrete voltage control with inner hysteresis current control loop has been proposed to keep the simplicity of the control law for the double-output MOB converter, which can be implemented by a combination of analogue and logical ICs or simple microcontroller to constrain the output voltages of MOB converter at their reference voltages against variation in load or input voltage. The salient features of the proposed control strategy are simplicity of implementation and ease to extend to multiple outputs in the MOB converter. Simulation and experimental results are presented to show the validity of control strategy.

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.
