Two-parameter bifurcation analysis of the buck converter
Rights accessOpen Access
This paper is concerned with the analysis of two-parameter bifurcation phenomena in the buck power converter. It is shown that the complex dynamics of the converter can be unfolded by considering higher codimension bifurcation points in two-parameter space. Specifically, standard smooth bifurcations are shown to merge with discontinuity-induced bifurcation (DIB) curves, giving rise to intricate bifurcation scenarios. The analytical results are compared with those obtained numerically, showing excellent agreement between the analytical predictions and the numerical observations. The existence of these two-parameter bifurcation phenomena involving DIBs and smooth bifurcations, predicted in [P. Kowalczyk et al., Internat. J. Bifur. Chaos Appl. Sci. Engrg., 16 (2006), pp. 601–629; A. Colombo and F. Dercole, SIAM J. Appl. Dyn. Syst., submitted], is confirmed in this important class of systems.
