    A modeling approach is presented that calculates an accurate open-loop transfer characteristic for a boost converter that employ peak current-mode control (PCMC). Many techniques exist for modeling a PCMC-based boost converter; however, all these techniques focus on purely resistive loads and are not always accurate for a purely capacitive load. In this paper, a new modeling technique is presented, which is simple and gives accurate results for both capacitive and resistive loads. Furthermore, the useful expressions for dc gain and pole locations of a boost converter operating in continuous-conduction mode with PCMC are derived and compare well to simulations and measurements.
