The double-boost topology is studied for operation as
a dc-ac converter and single stage audio amplifier. A
sliding mode controller is designed in order to achieve
fast enough response for the whole audio frequency
range. Symmetric, asymmetric, and interleaved operation
modes are analyzed, as well as the advantages
and disadvantages of achieving ZCS at all modes.
