This paper presents two different robust controllers for boost converters with two stages in a cascade. The first robust controller is monovariable; that is, the duty-cycle is the same for the two switches. The monovariable controller ensures that some prescribed constraints on pole placement and control effort are met, and optimizes the load disturbance rejection, while takes into account the uncertainty in certain parameters. The first controller is then compared with a multivariable robust controller; that is, with independent duty cycles in each switch. The multivariable controller takes into account the same uncertainty, constraints and optimization function. The comparison shows that the multivariable controller performs better at the expense of a slightly more complex implementation; that is, the multivariable controller provides a better rejection of the load disturbance. The paper also describes simulations and experimental results that are in perfect agreement with theoretical derivations.
