DC-DC power converters play an important role in powering telecom and computing systems. Complex systems, including power electronics systems, are increasingly using digital controllers because of the major advancements in digital controllers and DSP as well as there ability to perform sophisticated and enhanced control schemes. In this thesis, the digital controller is investigated for DC-DC converters in high current low voltage applications. For an optimal design of a regulated DC-DC converter, it is necessary to derive a valid model. The current doubler rectified half bridge (CDRHB) DC-DC converter is suitable for high current low voltage applications. In this thesis, the topology operations are analyzed and then the unified state space model, analog small signal model and digital small signal model are derived. Then the digital compensator design is discussed as well as the analog-digital converter (ADC) and the digital pulse-width-modulator (DPWM) design rules. In addition, voltage driving optimization is proposed for the benefit of the digital controller. Finally, experimental results based on the CDRHB are presented and analyzed.
