Comparing Nonlinear with Linear Control Methods for Error Correction in Switching Audio Amplifier Output Stages

Document Thumbnail

This paper addresses the important issue of efficient error correction in switching power output stages. A fundamental approach is taken, where a suite of various linear and non-linear control methods are investigated in theory and practice. Linear control systems prove to have a range of advantages compared with the investigated non-linear systems. The advantages cover simple modeling and optimization, low implementation complexity, effective error correction of all power stage generated errors and controllable performance. The theoretical benefits of non-linear control are not easily realized in hardware due to a range of inherent limitations.
