Multi-input power electronic converters have been gaining popularity in applications such as renewable energy sources and hybrid electric vehicles due to their reduced component count. In this paper, a new control method is introduced and successfully applied to a double-input buckboost converter to adjust the power supplied by each one of the sources. The control scheme is based on controlling the offset time between the switching commands while switching frequency is kept constant. Theoretically, it is proved that the offset time between the switch commands has a direct impact on the amount of current drawn from each source. The proposed control method has a very fast dynamic response and improves the stability of traditional controllers. Simulation results agree with the theoretical analysis.
