Summary: 
It is often observed that the operation of the digitally controlled dc-dc power converter becomes unstable when the relatively large integral coefficient is used to extend the regulation range of the output voltage to handle variations in the input voltage and load. This paper presents a novel digital controller with static model reference for switching dc-dc power converters to improve the performance characteristics and discusses its design-oriented analysis in the steady-state characteristics. It is clarified theoretically and experimentally that using the static model reference, the wide regulation range of the output voltage to handle variations in the input voltage and load current can be achieved with the appropriate small integral coefficient in the digital P-I-D controller. Therefore, since the integral coefficient is selected to cover the maximum instantaneous variation value of the static reference model, the integral coefficient is small and the operation is always stable.
