Output voltage regulation problem of DC-DC boost power converters is studied based on an averaged model with a practical inductor. This paper exploits the effect of inductor's parasitic resistance on the performance of an existing parallel-damped (PD) passivity-based controller (PBC) under load variations. As an attempt to apply the passivity-based framework to the converter with parasitic resistance we have combined a new proportional-integral (PI) controller with the PBC. Simulation results show that the combined (PBC and PI) dynamic output feedback controller successfully achieves the performance improvement under reference step changes and load variations.
