Application of Gyrator Concept to Control and Operation of Boost Converter Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2015 IEEE. In this paper, sliding-mode control methodology has been implemented to synthesize a DC-DC power converter and force it to be a R-gyrator and G-gyrator. A Single stage boost converter has been forced to be R-gyrator and the resulting value of the R- gyrator constant has been found 2.33 ohm with no transient response which proves the validity of the linearity of the system. For the second part of this study, the two stage boost converter based G-gyrator was simulated to verify the circuit response integrated with sliding mode feedback control. A Photovoltaic (PV) module has been explored as one of the most attractive applications using G-gyrator through the effectively two stage cascaded Boost converter as a matching impedance network between the PV source module and the load to extract maximum power from the PV module.
