The control of multiple switches in a power converter is the main challenge for multipleinput converters addressed in this paper. Using the concept of linearization and perturbation depicted in circuit averaging technique, the closed-loop small signal model for multi-input DC-DC buck converter is derived. The closed loop control to output voltage transfer function is derived. A brief compensator design is introduced for a multi-input buck converter. In order to control the duty cycles of multiple switches and control the output voltage, a new variable is introduced to relate the duty cycles in the closed loop control to output voltage transfer function. The analysis and controller design are simulated in LTSpice.
