Hardware-in-the-loop tuning of a feedback controller for a buck converter using a GA

By K. D. Wilkie, M. P. Foster, D. A. Stone and C. M. Bingham


This paper presents a methodology for tuning a PID-based feedback controller for a buck converter using the ITAE controller performance index. The controller parameters are optimized to ensure that a reasonable transient response can be achieved whilst retaining stable operation. Experimental results demonstrate the versatility of the on-line tuning methodology
