Control of chaos in positive output Luo converter using slope compensation method
This paper illustrates the control of chaotic behaviour in positive output Luo converter by slope compensation method. Bifurcation analysis is carried out in the discrete domain for a current controlled Luo converter operating in the continuous conduction mode. As the reference current is varied, periodic 1 orbit undergoes a flip bifurcation, periodic doubling and finally enters into chaotic regime. Variable ramp compensation technique is proposed to dynamically adjust the slope of the inductor current such that the upper bound of I
refis increased thereby widening the operating range. An iterative function that describes the dynamics of the inductor current with and without variable ramp compensation and the equivalent criteria for bifurcationfree operation is derived. A computer simulation using MATLAB/Simulink confirms the predicted bifurcations. The simulated results are validated through hardware implementation.
