This paper studies switched dynamical systems based on a simplified model of two-paralleled dc-dc buck converters in current mode control. In the system, we present novel four switching rules depending on both state variables and periodic clock. The system has piecewise constant vector field and piecewise linear solutions: they are well suited for precise analysis. We then clarify parameter conditions that guarantee generation of stable 2-phase synchronization and hyperchaos for each switching rule. Especially, it is clarified that stable synchronization is always possible by proper use of the switching rules and adjustment of clock period. Presenting a simple test circuit, typical phenomena are confirmed experimentally.
