PSIMR

Fixed frequency sliding mode-based robust inversion with a full-bridge current DC-link buck-boost. The substitution of the original switches by a full bridge in a non-inverting buck-boost converter results in an inverter capable of carrying out step-down and step-up tasks as well under sliding mode control. The control law is implemented by means of the zero average Dynamics algorithm, which provides a fixed frequency operation and guarantees null error in each switching period, thus achieving a highly accurate tracking of periodic reference profiles. Furthermore, semi-infinite programming techniques are used to reduce power losses and, at the same time, prevent undesirable effects of control action saturation. The performance of the inverter is ensured to be robust in the face of bounded nonlinear and resistive loads. Realistic simulation results obtained with PSIMR software validate the proposed schemes.
