This paper presents an improved resonant parametric perturbation method based on the modulation of a nonlinear map for controlling chaos. The control target can be any periodic orbit, which is not necessarily what is embedded in the chaotic attractor. Application of the method is illustrated for a common current-programmed DC/DC converter which has been known to easily become chaotic for a wide parameter range. The control effects of chaos are demonstrated with computer simulations. Phys. Soc. and IOP Publishing Ltd.
