Application of a nonovershooting tracking control method for the double buck converter

The problem of avoiding overshoot in tracking control problems has an extensive history, but only a few works have offered methods that are applicable to a nonlinear plant. The recent paper (Schmid, 2019) adapted some methods from the linear control systems literature to offer state feedback laws to deliver a nonovershooting response in all outputs of a multi-input multi-output feedback linearisable plant. A double-buck converter consists of cascaded buck converters connected to a single voltage supply. Taking the system outputs as the voltages across the two load resistors, we use dynamic averaging to obtain a nonlinear state model for the converter. We introduce suitable coordinates to show it has a well-defined vector relative degree and show the system is feedback linearisable. The methods of (Schmid, 2019) are then employed to obtain a state feedback law that ensures both outputs track arbitrary time-varying reference trajectories without overshoot.
