Low-cost digital control for SMPS integration

Abstract : Digital control is becoming a new trend in Switching Mode Power Supply (SMPS) development. This paper described a prototype implementation of a digital control solution prior to monolithic integration. An original algorithm, called RST, is used to obtain a better rejection of load variations and PWM noises than PID algorithms while keeping a good robustness. Sensitivity functions have been introduced that help tuning the algorithm coefficients. An FPGA implementation has been performed for the control of a 1MHz step-down voltage regulator. One challenge in design is to meet the output voltage accuracy, avoid the limit cycle phenomenon and reduce the high-frequency clock requirement. The choice and impact of fixed-point representation for the computation has been discussed. A 9-bit resolution DPWM is obtained using DLL function modules in FPGA and a half cycle counter. Experimental results proved the performance of the proposed digitally control SMPS
