This paper is concerned with nonlinear control with integral compensation for the output voltage of boost converters through the use of their discretized bilinear model. We first derive a nonlinear state feedback control law through Lyapunov stability theory, where we introduce a Lyapunov function candidate and maximize its decrement at each switching instant under a penalty on the control input. This approach is then modified to incorporate an integral action in the control law,and a method is provided for confirming the closed-loop stability under the modified control law. We next apply the design method of the control law with integral compensation to the identified discretized bilinear model of a boost converter. Finally, we carry out control experiments with the designed control law, through which the effectiveness of the overall scheme of the present study is demonstrated.
