A simple adaptive control strategy is proposed for regulating the output voltage of a DC-to-DC converter operating in continuous mode. The algorithm is derived by perturbing an approximate large-signal equation around a 'varying' operating point. This differs from the usual practice of applying the perturbation technique around a fixed operating condition. In the algorithm, the control equation as well as the control parameter is constantly adjusted according to the environmental changes to meet the specified dynamical requirement. Simulation results are presented.
