Abstract

Although various control techniques have been proposed for dc-dc converters, direct comparisons between these techniques have been difficult. In the past, special test cases have been used to emphasize the strengths of a new control technique and show the weaknesses of conventional approaches. It can be debated whether these test cases are realistic. This paper proposes a suite of benchmark converters that are examples of good conventional designs. The benchmark designs are based on the extensively studied methods of averaging and linearization. The benchmarks are proposed as reference circuits for comparisons of simulators and control methods.
