Voltage control of standalone converters with LC filter is usually based on proportional-resonant or proportional-integral controllers, which often require further active damping methods to achieve stability. These solutions place design constraints in the selection of the closed-loop pole locations which limit the achievable bandwidth and increase the design complexity. In contrast, in state-space based controllers, the closed-loop poles can be placed freely through state feedback, which makes them particularly suitable for high order plants and/or low sampling frequencies. Among the modern control methods, direct pole placement is a simple technique that enables the establishment of a straightforward relationship between outcome and design, as opposed to more advanced approaches. This paper presents a discrete state-space voltage controller for standalone converters with LC output filter. The proposed method combines the direct pole placement technique with a virtual disturbance observer in order to compensate the effects produced by the load and model mismatches. The design process takes into account both the filter parameters and the sampling frequency, rendering the performance of the obtained controller independent of both. The result is a streamlined design procedure that leads to consistent outcomes for a wide range of plant parameter variations, requiring only one input: the desired closed-loop bandwidth.
