This work presents the development of a
MLD (Mixed Logical Dynamical) model for a boost
converter. The boost converter, as well as any other
switched device in power electronics, is a system suited
to be characterized as a MLD system due to the presence
of the switch, introducing a binary input to the system,
and the dynamical evolution depending on if-then-else
rules. The classical approach to describe switched-mode
power electronic devices is via Â?averagingÂ? techniques. A
comparison of the simulation results obtained with two
models, hybrid and real, is also presented.
