Abstract: This paper presents voltage mode control of buck converter by a simple neuro-controller (NC) which is trained by the particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm. Structure of controller, PSO algorithm and training of neural networks (NN) is discussed in details. The dynamic performance of the controller under input voltage change and load current variations are presented and discussed in the simulation environment.

Keywords: DC-DC buck converters; neurocontrol; reasoning-based intelligent systems; particle swarm optimisation; PSO; voltage mode control; neural networks; input voltage change; load current variations; simulation.
