© 2015 IEEE. In this paper a simple sliding mode controller based on the averaging state space model is proposed for a DC-DC boost converter. It is demonstrated to be easily implemented and has time-variant sliding coefficients. The proposed controller can effectively regulate the output voltage by controlling the switch states (through the dynamic duty cycles) even when the input voltage, load or output command varies. Furthermore the controller is independent of the inductor current and the load, although the load value is needed when designing the sliding coefficients. The constant switching frequency is maintained thus simplifying the design procedure, enhancing the regulation properties and benefiting the filter design. The controller has good dynamic response, overshoot damping and robustness. Comparative simulations are carried in MATLAB/Simulink between the proposed approach and a widely used PID controller to verify the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed method.
