    Abstract

    This paper studies a single buck converter and a system of parallel-connected dc/dc buck converters under current-mode control. The effects of variations of the reference current are studied. It has been observed that the system exhibits low-frequency bifurcation behaviour while period-doubling at switching frequency is suppressed. Extensive simulations are used to capture the behaviour. Time domain waveforms, stroboscopic maps, and trajectories are shown. The paper reveals the drastic alteration of bifurcation behaviour of dc/dc converters due to subtle coupling.
