Concept of using a second-order switching surface in the boundary control of inverters is derived in this paper. The switching surface is formulated by estimating the state trajectory movement after a switching action. It results in a high state trajectory velocity along the switching surface. This phenomenon accelerates the trajectory moving towards the target operating point. Time-domain responses of the inverter with the proposed boundary control method under large-signal variations have

Dynamic responses of the inverter supplying to different kinds of loads, including a resistive load, an inductive load, and a diode-capacitor rectifying circuit, have been studied. Experimental results show that the inverter output voltage can attain a low total harmonic distortion at different load conditions and fast response to a large-signal load disturbance and an output reference voltage change. Index Terms -Boundary control, geometric control method, second-order switching surface, state trajectory control, inverters control and hysteresis control, are widely studied for power converters [9]- [12] . All those methods provide good steady-state and large-signal response and stability, but the
