Single-phase power converters with the active pulsating-power-buffering (PPB) function are essentially highly coupled and nonlinear systems. Advanced control techniques are needed for this emerging class of converters to achieve fast transient response and large-signal stability. Existing control solutions are based on either 1) linear control techniques that are operating-point specific or 2) nonlinear control techniques that are generally topology-dependent. The proposed work is an evolved generalized feedback-linearization (FBL) control approach that incorporates the direct Lyapunov control method. The proposed control provides good stabilization of the internal dynamics of the system (which is unviable with FBL control) while still retaining all the best features of FBL control. A kind of single-phase power conversion system with active PPB is described. It is shown that FBL control naturally destabilizes the system and that the proposed control can globally stabilize the system under various operating conditions while yielding fast dynamics.
