The contribution  is distinct from the papers mentioned above because it uses more traditional backstepping tools. It is devoted to power electronics devices. We proposed a nonlinear control law for a DC/DC boost converter dedicated to extract the maximum power from a photovoltaic (PV) array, taking into account the constraints of the control action. We performed simulations on SimPowerSystems to validate how the developed control strategy is able to properly control the converter.
