7.3. State Space Averaging A formal method for deriving the small-signal ac equations of a switching converter Equivalent to the modeling method of the previous sections Uses the state-space matrix description of linear circuits Often cited in the literature A general approach: if the state equations of the converter can be written for each subinterval, then the small-signal averaged model can always be derived Computer programs exist which utilize the state-space averaging method

7.3.1. The state equations of a network
A canonical form for writing the differential equations of a system If the system is linear, then the derivatives of the state variables are expressed as linear combinations of the system independent inputs and state variables themselves The physical state variables of a system are usually associated with the storage of energy For a typical converter circuit, the physical state variables are the inductor currents and capacitor voltages Other typical physical state variables: position and velocity of a motor shaft At a given point in time, the values of the state variables depend on the previous history of the system, rather than the present values of the system inputs To solve the differential equations of a system, the initial values of the state variables must be specified

State equations of a linear system, in matrix form
A canonical matrix form: State vector x(t) contains inductor currents, capacitor voltages, etc.: Input vector u(t) contains independent sources such as vg(t) Output vector y(t) contains other dependent quantities to be computed, such as ig(t) Matrix K contains values of capacitance, inductance, and mutual inductance, so that K dx/dt is a vector containing capacitor currents and inductor winding voltages. These quantities are expressed as linear combinations of the independent inputs and state variables. The matrices A, B, C, and E contain the constants of proportionality.

Example State vector Matrix K Input vector Choose output vector as
To write the state equations of this circuit, we must express the inductor voltages and capacitor currents as linear combinations of the elements of the x(t) and u( t) vectors.

7.3.2. The basic state-space averaged model
Given: a PWM converter, operating in continuous conduction mode, with two subintervals during each switching period. During subinterval 1, when the switches are in position 1, the converter reduces to a linear circuit that can be described by the following state equations: During subinterval 2, when the switches are in position 2, the converter reduces to another linear circuit, that can be described by the following state equations:

Equilibrium (dc) state-space averaged model
Provided that the natural frequencies of the converter, as well as the frequencies of variations of the converter inputs, are much slower than the switching frequency, then the state-space averaged model that describes the converter in equilibrium is where the averaged matrices are and the equilibrium dc components are

Solution of equilibrium averaged model
Equilibrium state-space averaged model: Solution for X and Y:

Small-signal ac state-space averaged model
where So if we can write the converter state equations during subintervals 1 and 2, then we can always find the averaged dc and small-signal ac models

Averaged Switch Modeling
Separate switch elements from remainder of converter Remainder of converter consists of linear circuit The converter applies signals xT to the switch network The switch network generates output signals xs We have solved for how xs depends on xT

Block diagram of converter

The linear time-invariant network

The circuit averaging step
To model the low-frequency components of the converter waveforms, average the switch output waveforms (in xs(t)) over one switching period.

Relating the result to previously-derived PWM converter models: a buck is a buck, regardless of the switch We can do this if we can express the average xs(t) in the form

PWM switch: finding Xs1 and Xs2

Finding µ: ZCS example where, from previous slide,

Derivation of the averaged system equations of the resonant switch converter
Equations of the linear network (previous Eq. 1): Substitute the averaged switch network equation: Result: Next: try to manipulate into same form as PWM state-space averaged result

Conventional state-space equations: PWM converter with switches in position 1
In the derivation of state-space averaging for subinterval 1: the converter equations can be written as a set of linear differential equations in the following standard form (Eq. 7.90): These equations must be equal: Solve for the relevant terms: But our Eq. 1 predicts that the circuit equations for this interval are:

Conventional state-space equations: PWM converter with switches in position 2
Same arguments yield the following result: and

Manipulation to standard state-space form
Eliminate Xs1 and Xs2 from previous equations. Result is: Collect terms, and use the identity µ + µ’ = 1: —same as PWM result, but with d  µ

Perturbation and Linearization
The switch conversion ratio µ is generally a fairly complex function. Must use multivariable Taylor series, evaluating slopes at the operating point:

Small signal model Substitute and eliminate nonlinear terms, to obtain: Same form of equations as PWM small signal model. Hence same model applies, including the canonical model of Section 7.5. The dependence of µ on converter signals constitutes built-in feedback.

Salient features of small-signal transfer functions, for basic converters

Parameters for various resonant switch networks

Averaged switch equations: Linearize: Resulting ac model: µ = F

Low-frequency model Tank dynamics occur only at frequency near or greater than switching frequency —discard tank elements —same as PWM buck, with d replaced by F

Example 2: Half-wave ZCS quasi-resonant buck
Now, µ depends on js:
