Title: Switched-Mode Systems: Problems Motivated by Power Converters, Part II (½ hour)
Abstract: This talk studies a special switched-mode power supply called a "single-inductor, dual output" (SIDO) converter. There are two independent switches. The conventional approach of designing controllers is based on an approximation that may be far from being valid. We present an approach that does not involve an approximation. This leads to some discrete-time linear system techniques involving time-varying and time-invariant operators defined on the Hilbert space of square-summable signals.
