This article aims to accomplish the output voltage tracking task for buck converters without current feedback, diminishing the performance degradation from model-plant mismatches and load variations. The following contributions overcome these difficulties: a) the combination of Luenberger and disturbance observer (DOB) techniques for a parameter-independent voltage-derivative observer; b) the pole-zero cancellation control incorporating the DOB and active-damping injection techniques; and c) the exponential convergence guarantee to the target tracking system subject to the variable convergence rate mechanism. Convincing experimental evidence confirms the effectiveness of proposed tracking control using a prototype 3 kW buck converter control system.
