Digital implementation of sliding-mode current control applied to dc-dc switching converters is analyzed and developed in this paper. It is based on an interpolation predictive strategy that avoids problems associated to continuous sampling process of the controlled variable and minimizes quasi-sliding effects. In addition to inherent advantages of digital implementation, as programmability, flexibility, complex calculation capability and noise immunity, the proposed strategy maintains robustness and has similar behavior than analog sliding-mode current control implementations. In order to obtain output voltage regulation, an outer proportional-integral digital output voltage control loop is added. Simulated and experimental results in a boost converter are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions.
