This paper presents four topics of digital control approaches to apply future-oriented power converters. The energy flow in power conversion system becomes complex due to the implementation of renewable energy sources. In order to control the energy flow in high performance, the artificial intelligence technologies are expected to be implemented to control the complex power conversion system in the future. The digital control approaches for achieving high performance of switching power converters are proposed as basic researches to apply artificial intelligence technologies. They are discussed and the future research orientations are clarified based on the discussion.
