  • Analysis and design of a terminal sliding mode control applied to a step-down power converter 

    Masclans Serrat, Núria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-06-25)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Generally, step-down converters are controlled by a linear control called average model. This control technique results in a system behavior highly dependent on the working point. Therefore, non-linear techniques have been ...
