    Pulse width modulation (PWM) current-mode single phase inverters are known to exhibit bifurcations and chaos when parameters vary or if the gain of the proportional controller is arbitrarily increased. Our aim in this paper is to show, using control theory and numerical simulations, how to apply a method to stabilize the interesting periodic orbit for larger values of the proportional gain. To accomplish this aim. a time-delayed feedback controller (TDFC) is used in conjunction with the proportional controller in its simple form as well as in its extended form (ETDFC). The main advantages of those methods are the robustness and ease of construction because they do not require the knowledge of an accurate model but only the period of the target unstable periodic orbit (UPO). Moreover, to improve the dynamical performances, an optimal criterion and an adaptive law are defined to determine the control parameters.
