Abstract

This paper proposes a method to stabilize and enhance the dynamic performance of a cascaded DC-DC system by adaptively reshaping the source output impedance. The method aims to reduce the ratio of the source output impedance to the load input impedance, referred to as the minor loop gain, to eliminate the interaction between the load and the source systems. This interaction can deteriorate the dynamic performance or might lead to instability. Thus, the bus current is used to improve the dynamic performance by reducing the magnitude of the source’s output impedance adaptively according to the loading condition such that the dynamic performance is consistently improved. Utilizing the bus current facilitates the compatibility between the proposed controller and most widely used DC-DC converters controlled in voltage mode, including non-minimum phase converters. In addition to the flexibility the bus current provides to embed the proposed solution with conventional control schemes. Experimental results have validated the effectiveness of the proposed controller along with time-based simulation and theoretical analysis, for minimum and non-minimum phase converters.
