Abstract

This review presents a practical evaluation of some digital control laws employed in Point-of-Load converters (PoL). For that, the high-frequency digital DC-DC converters test bank have been developed. The control laws are investigated by using Simulink models and they have been implemented by using the 16 bits DSC to validate them in high-frequency applications. This review lets to remark the pros and contras of each control laws for commercial PoL applications.
