About this book


This book proposes a proportional integral type sliding function, which does not facilitate the finite reaching and hence the responses of the load voltage results in an exponential steady state. To facilitate finite time reaching, it also presents the new Integral Sliding Mode Control with Finite Time Reaching (ISMCFTR). The book also extends the application of the proposed controller to another type of PEC, the DC-DC Boost converter, and also proposes the PI type sliding surface for the Zeta converter, which is non-inverting type Buck Boost converter. An important source of practical implementations, it presents practical implementations as simulation and experimental results to demonstrate the efficacy of the converter.
