This chapter presents a procedure to design and control power electronic converters (PECs), which includes a zero-based analysis as a dynamical system response criterion for dimensioning converter passive elements. For this purpose, a nonideal boost DC-DC converter (converter considering its parasitic losses) is dynamically modeled and analyzed in steady state as an application example. The steady-state model is obtained from the average nonlinear model. The steady-state model allows deducing expressions for equilibrium conversion ratio M D and efficiency η of the system. Conditions for the converter conduction modes are analyzed. Simulations are made to see how parasitic losses affect both M D and η . Then, inductor current and capacitor voltage ripple analyses are carried out to find lower boundaries for inductor and capacitor values. The values of the boost DC-DC converter passive elements are selected taking into account both steady-state and zero-based analyses. A nonideal boost DC-DC converter and a PI-based current mode control (CMC) structure are designed to validate the proposed procedure. Finally, the boost DC-DC converter is implemented in PSIM and system operating requirements are satisfactorily verified.
