This paper proposes the structured singular value () approach to the problem of designing an output voltage regulator for a Buck-Boost converter with current-mode control. This approach allows a quantitative description of the effects of reactive components' tolerances and operating point variations, which strongly affect the converter dynamics. At first, a suitable linear converter model is derived, whose parameter variations are described in terms of perturbations of the linear fractional

Finally, the approximate -synthesis procedure known as D-K iteration is used to design a robustly performing regulator. Simulation results are presented, describing the small and large signal behavior of a reduced order approximation of the -synthesized controller.
