Abstract: In this work, the authors propose a comprehensive mathematical model for PWM DC-DC converters with unipolar switching scheme (including all classes: A, B, C, D and four-quadrant E) and closed-loop PWM DC-DC converter driven DC S.E. motor for transportation drives. The model is useful for electric drives designers for the investigation of both normal and abnormal modes of operation of the drive.

Keywords: DC-DC 4-Q converter; PWM; DC motors; continuous current; discontinuous current; unipolar switching; polar switching; switching frequency; two-mass mechatronic system; pulse width modulation; electric drives; drive design.
