Modeling and Analysis of Projected Cross Point Control-A New Current-Mode-Control Approach


This paper features the projected cross point control (PCPC) approach which is a recent current-mode control (CMC) technique. PCPC benefits from several advantages including fixed switching frequency, wide stability range, high current loop gain, improved audio susceptibility, and simpler design procedure. An introduction of its principles of operation is followed by detailed discussions about its stability and dynamic response. This paper then describes the development of the small-signal model of PCPC and derives transfer functions, such as current loop gain, audio susceptibility, and output impedance. Finally, simulations and experimental results are presented. Peak, average, and hysteresis CMC schemes are used for comparison.
