The sliding mode control(SMC) method has gained popularity in many areas such as robotics, aerial vehicles, power electronics, and electrical drives. Firstly, the fundamentals of SMC theory for controlling power converters were explained briefly. Then, the design of continuous-time SMC (the sliding surfaces function design, sliding coefficient selection, control input selection and modulation technique) was presented. Thereafter, the SMC of various power converters (DC-DC buck converter, grid-connected inverter. UPS inverter, dynamic voltage restorer, and rectifier) were presented with simulation as well as experimentally verified results. Finally, some conclusions were derived. 40 people attended this event.
