Here, A PID controller plus a novel linear-to-nonlinear translator is proposed and applied to the boost converter to improve the operating performance of the boost converter under large transient variations in load all over the quiescent dc input voltage range. The proposed translator is inserted between the PID controller and the main power stage such that the PID controller considers the behavior of the boost converter to be quasi-linear, thereby suppressing the effect of nonlinear behavior of the boost converter on the PID controller. Besides, variations in dc gain of the control-to-output transfer function with the translator are smaller than those without the translator, thus making system control easy to attain. Also, one-comparator counter-based sampling without any A-D converter is presented herein to realize the proposed control strategy. As mentioned above, the proposed control strategy can make the boost converter stably operated under large load transient responses all over the quiescent dc input voltage range.
