AbstractIn order to increase the precision and simplify the process, a novel control strategy was proposed for the buck converter, which is based on the inverse system method aiming at the nonlinear identity of the mathematic model of the buck converter using the state-space average modeling method, a pseudo-linear model is given based on the inverse system method, then a Variable Structure Controller is designed to meet some performance index in terms of the pseudo-linear system.

I. INTRODUCTION S a kind of DC-DC converters, Buck converter is a kind of typical switching nonlinear system. There are large limits using linear control theory on these systems, and
its dynamic response and control precision can not reach the desired result. So doing research into new non-linear control technology, it can solve the deficiency that the traditional linear control technology is for switching converter fundamentally [1-2].
To the non-linear control problems, generally we first change it into linear system, and then using linear control theory for system design and analysis. The differential geometry and inverse system are the two main branches. In recent years, the differential geometry for non-linear control system has rapid development, and it provides a feasible way to solve complex non-linear control system . But this state feedback linearization method lead the problem into the geometry domain, using the lee derivatives and other complex abstract differential geometry method, the calculation is complex and the control method is difficult to achieve in engineer. As a new theory of new non-linear feedback linearization control theory, inverse system method have remarkable development and a series of theoretical results especially in the decouple control for the non-linear system . Although essentially it still use the feedback linearization method to achieve the exact linearization of multi-variable, multi-linear, strong coupling system, it does not depend on the solution of nonlinear system or its stability analysis and it has no need to bring the issues into geometric domain for discussion. It is intuitive, simple and easy to understand.
Based on the considerations above, the paper adopts

inverse system method to make the original system to a pseudo-linear system, this will allow the subsequent design of control strategy become simply . Also taking into account the variable structure has good robustness and fast-tracking capabilities, and the design of this controller is simple, the paper adopts variable structure control theory to design control law for the pseudo-linear system . At last, establish the Simulink model, through comparing the simulation performance with the method this paper proposed and the method proposed in literature , it confirms the feasibility of the method, and is also shows good dynamic and static performance.

subsequent design of control strategy become simply. Taking into account the variable structure has good robustness and fast-tracking capabilities, so this paper design the controller based on variable structure theory.

strategy to design the buck converter controller, the paper establishes the simulink model of the buck converter, the simulation parameters are described as:
Input voltage inU =100 V, load resistance LR =10 , inductance L =2 mH capacitor C = 10 F , switching frequency sf =100 kHZ
Variable structure control parameters are: 4 42 10 , 2 10 , 10k c = = = .

Fig. 6. The output response when the input voltage changes from 100V to 90V
Fig. 6 presents the output response when the input voltage changes from 100V to 90V at time 1000 s , it can show that the disturbance of the input voltage almost has no effect on output voltage by the method in literature and in this paper. These characteristics can be explained by the theory in the literature , in the expression of inverse system the input voltage inU is denominator, when there have disturbances in input voltage, the inverse system will change duty cycle according to the input voltage, so the output voltage can remain stable.
III. CONCLUSION Doing research into new non-linear control technology, it
can solve the deficiency that the traditional linear control technology is for switching converter fundamentally. Against the complexity of differential geometry control theory, the paper proposes using inverse system method to linearize the buck converter based on state-space average model. Considering the robustness and rapid tracking ability of the variable structure, then uses variable structure theory to design variable control law of buck converter. Through comparing the simulation performance with the method this paper proposed and the state feedback linearization control theory, it shows excellent starting-up response and strong robust to the disturbance of the input voltage and load. Then it verifies that the method is feasible.
