Designers may not be fully aware of a very powerful technique that can extract maximum power from solar panels—the double integral sliding mode controller (DISMC).1 This control scheme enables a very effective dynamic sliding switching operation that markedly improves the sliding duty-cycle ratio. This in turn enhances solar-panel efficiency even with partial shading conditions.

In this article, we’ll discuss the sliding duty-cycle ratio effective operation in a DC-DC boost converter.
