Observer and Lyapunov-based control for switching power converters with LC input filter

Abstract : This paper proposes a control method for a switching power converter. This converter is connected to a dc-link of a dc microgrid system via an LC input filter. This control method is based on a Lyapunov stability analysis; all state variables are acquired for evaluating stability analysis, including the output current for calculating the load resistance. To reduce a number of sensor counts, the input current is estimated. Moreover, loss occurrence in the converter is observed to reduce static errors of the controlled state variables, especially the output voltage. The losses are modelled as a series input voltage source observed from the dc-dc converter and a parallel current source. The latter enables us to eliminate the output current sensor. Using information from the estimated current source, a load resistance can be calculated. A Lyapunov function candidate is chosen to ensure that the system, including the observer, operates in a stable manner. Based on evaluating the time-derivative of the chosen Lyapunov function, we obtain the switching command that makes the system operate stably in each sampling cycle. In this paper, the proposed technique is applied on a boost converter. The simulation and as well experimental results validate the proposed control.
