This paper presents a sequence switching control (SSC) scheme for buck converters with a series-inductor auxiliary circuit, aiming at improving the load transient response. During an unloading transient, the series inductor is controlled as a small equivalent inductance so as to achieve a fast transient regulation. While in the steady state, the series inductor behaves as a large inductance to reduce the output current ripple. Furthermore, on the basis of the proposed variable inductance circuit, a SSC control scheme is proposed and implemented in a digital form. With the proposed control scheme the unloading transient event is divided into n+1 sub-periods, and in each sub-period, the capacitor-charge balance principle is used to determine the switching time sequence. Furthermore, its feasibility is validated in experiment with a 12V-3.3V low-voltage high-current synchronous buck converter. Experimental results demonstrate that the voltage overshoot of the proposed SSC scheme has improved more than 74% compared to that of the time-optimal control (TOC) scheme.
