A recently proposed average current-mode control method is analyzed. A complete small-signal model for the control scheme is developed. The model is accurate up to half the switching frequency. This control scheme is suitable for applications where the average inductor current needs to be controlled, as in power factor correction circuits and battery charger dischargers. The subharmonic oscillation, commonly found in peak current-mode control, also exists in this method. This subharmonic oscillation can be eliminated by properly choosing the proper gain of the compensation network in the current loop. Model predictions are confirmed experimentally
