In this paper, two control techniques, namely sliding mode control and H-∞ control, are proposed for a non-isolated CUK converter. The mathematical model of CUK converter is designed using state-space averaging method. The two controllers serve two main purposes, regulation of output voltage and set point tracking. The regulation and tracking of the plant are measured against the output load and input voltage fluctuations. The solar PV module is used as a source at the input side instead of DC voltage. The outcomes are presented in this paper using MATLAB/Simulink platform.
