Developing Buck-Boost Converter Control in Simulink

In this webinar MathWorks engineers will develop embedded software for power converter control using Simulink and Model-Based Design. Using a buck-boost converter example, you will see how to develop, simulate, and implement a controller that maintains desired output voltage in the presence of input voltage variations and load changes to achieve fast and stable response.

During the demonstration, we will show how Simulink can be used to:

  • Model passive circuit elements, power semiconductors, varying power sources and loads
  • Simulate the converter in continuous and discontinuous conduction modes
  • Determine power losses and simulate thermal behavior of the converter
  • Tune the controller to meet design requirements such as rise time, overshoot, and settling time
  • Generate C code from the controller model for implementation on a Texas Instruments C2000 microcontroller

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
