A current-mode control technique, quasi-charge control (QCC), is studied. A small-signal model is developed for QCC. The model is derived for converters operating in the continuous conduction mode. The model is accurate up to half of the switching frequency. The proposed small-signal model is used to assess the dynamics of pulse-width-modulated (PWM) power converters with QCC, and to compare their performance to the current-injected control (CIC) and charge control (CC) schemes. As in CC, the QCC converges to CIC at light loads close to the boundary between continuous and discontinuous conduction modes. The dynamics of power converters with QCC or CC are more sensitive to load change and less sensitive to line change than those of power converters with CIC, especially the current loop dynamics. However, unlike in the case of CC, the dependency on the load/line can be controlled when the QCC is designed. Control design guidelines for DC-DC power converters and power factor correction rectifiers are presented, and experimental measurements are performed to verify the proposed model
