Digital Control of High-Frequency Switched-Mode Power Converters


Efficient processing and control of electric power is required in applications ranging from submilliwatt on-chip power management to hundreds of kilowatt and megawatt power levels in motor drives and utility applications. The objectives of high efficiency, as well as static and dynamic control of inputs or outputs under a range of operating conditions, are accomplished using power electronics, that is, switched-mode power converters consisting of passive (capacitive and inductive) components, and power semiconductor devices operated as switches. In high-power applications, control and monitoring tasks are often more complex, while the power semiconductor devices are operated at relatively low switching frequencies, for example, up to tens of kilohertz. The controller cost and power consumption are relatively low compared to the overall system cost and power rating. In these applications, digital control offers clear technical and economic advantages in addressing complex control, management, and monitoring tasks. As a result, for many years now, digital control methods and digital controllers based on general-purpose or dedicated microprocessors, digital signal processors (DSPs), or programmable logic devices have been widely adopted in power electronics applications at relatively high power levels.

In ubiquitous low-to-medium power switched-mode power supply (SMPS) applications, including point-of-load (POL) regulators, nonisolated and isolated dc-dc converters, single-phase power factor correction (PFC) rectifiers, single-phase inverters, and lighting applications, adoption of digital power management and digital control has been slower. In these applications, switching frequencies are often in the range from hundreds of kilohertz to multiple megahertz, and much faster dynamic responses are required. The controller cost and the controller power consumption can easily present significant portions of the system cost and power dissipation. Furthermore, in many applications, control challenges have been successfully met by continuous advances of readily available analog controllers, using well-established analog analysis, modeling, and design techniques [1-5]. Nevertheless, practical digital control of high-frequency switched-mode power converters has moved from proof-of-concept demonstrations to digital pulse width modulation (DPWM) controller chips commercially available from multiple vendors, with growing adoption rates in many applications. Several factors have contributed to the increasing penetration of the concept of "digital power" in high-frequency power electronics applications:

Ongoing advances in digital integrated-circuit processes have continued to increase processing capabilities while bringing the cost down.
The needs for improved system integration and increasingly complex power management and monitoring functions have translated into the needs for digital interfaces and programmability in switched-mode power conversion applications [9-11].
Practical high-performance digital control techniques have been introduced and demonstrated, together with innovative approaches offering performance gains or entirely new capabilities that would be difficult or impractical to realize using traditional analog techniques [12-14].
The "digital power" concept encompasses several aspects:

Digital power management , which refers to system-level control and monitoring of power conversion and distribution, usually over a serial communication bus [9-11]. Power management functions include turning on and off or sequencing system power rails, adjusting setpoints for converter control loops, programming control loop parameters, monitoring and reporting of measured status or variables, and so on [15, 16]. These functions are typically performed at timescales that are relatively long compared to a switching period.
