SUMMARY This paper investigates the fast-scale instability in a power-factor-correction (PFC) boost converter under a conventional average current-mode control. The converter is operated in continuous mode. Computer simulations and theoretical analysis are performed to study the eeects of the time-varying input voltage under the variation of some chosen(More)
The buck converter has been known to exhibit chaotic behavior in a wide parameter range. In this paper, the resonant parametric perturbation method is applied to control chaos in a voltage-mode controlled buck converter. In particular, the effects of phase shift and frequency mismatch in the perturbing signal are studied. It is shown that the control power(More)
— This paper studies the " intermittent " chaos and subharmonics observed in switching dc/dc converters using a simple circuit model that describes possible unintended coupling of some weak spurious signal to the converter. The study shows that the signal strength and frequency of the intruding signal are vital parameters that affect the type of(More)
—The method of resonant parametric perturbation is a simple non-feedback chaos control method which is easy to implement in practice. In this paper, an optimal strategy is applied to stabilize an unstable orbit in a chaotically operating current-mode controlled buck-boost converter. Optimal values of initial phase angles are computed corresponding to(More)
The aim of this paper is to introduce and investigate a novel complex Lorenz system with a flux-controlled memristor, and to realize its synchronization. The system has an infinite number of stable and unstable equilibrium points, and can generate abundant dynamical behaviors with different parameters and initial conditions, such as limit cycle, torus,(More)
This paper introduces a new memristor-based hyperchaotic complex Lü system (MHCLS) and investigates its adaptive complex generalized synchronization (ACGS). Firstly, the complex system is constructed based on a memristor-based hyperchaotic real Lü system, and its properties are analyzed theoretically. Secondly, its dynamical behaviors, including hyperchaos,(More)
Intermittent instability is commonly observed in switching power supplies during the design and development phase. It manifests as symmetrical period-doubling bifurcation in the time domain with long intermittent periods. Such intermittent operation is considered undesirable in practice and is usually avoided by appropriate adjustments of circuit(More)
