This paper brings two major contributions: the first investigates and draws conclusions about stability and bifurcation phenomena related to one-cycle controlled dc-dc converters when non-ideal reset is encountered. The second introduces a new general mathematical technique for deriving stability and bifurcation behavior in continuous conduction mode operated dc-dc converters. Up to now, one-cycle control analysis assumed the integrator is instantly reset and in these conditions it was

In the present work it is proven that even with an ideal converter, when the integration capacitor is discharged over a nonzero resistor the system becomes unstable at high duty cycles. The stability condition with respect to the control voltage is analytically derived using a new general proposed technique. This approach can be applied to any control such as: traditional current mode control, predictive current control, charge control, one cycle control or feedback loops employing different regulators. Moreover, it can be used with different types of modulation: leading-edge, trailing-edge or double-edge modulation. When applied to one-cycle controlled buck converters employing a non-ideal resettable integrator, it is proven that bifurcation phenomena are encountered. This behavior with period doubling instability is confirmed by Matlab and Caspoc simulations. The control duty cycle d for the OCC technique can be calculated (1) using the equation below:
