Abstract: The transient response control is one of the most important tasks in the control system design. The transient response has characterized based on the relationship between characteristic ratios and time domain specifications. The characteristic ratios are the design parameters of the characteristic ratio assignment (CRA) approach. This article presents a novel polynomial controller for all types of linear second-order systems. The proposed controller is designed using CRA. The important features of this controller are that it has simple design steps, set-point tracking, and disturbance rejection capabilities. Initially, the proposed controller is designed for an unstable nonminimum-phase second-order system to demonstrate the performance and robustness. Subsequently, the presented controller is analyzed and validated on the nonideal dc-dc buck converter. The buck converter is highly sensitive to the suddenly changing load conditions. The major issue of output voltage control in the dc-dc buck converter is addressed in this article. In addition, the robustness and performance of the proposed controller are verified for the sudden change in supply input voltage, the sudden change in the reference voltage, the parametric uncertainty in inductor (L) and capacitor (C), and the sudden change in load. Furthermore, the efficacy of the proposed controller is evaluated by comparing it with the recently published control schemes for this converter. The proposed controller is implemented using dSPACE 1104 real-time controller. Applicability of the presented controller is corroborated experimentally on the nonideal dc-dc buck converter. The simulation as well as hardware results recommend that the proposed controller is suited for the nonideal dc-dc buck converter under such conditions.
