Symbolic analysis methods for averaged modeling of switching power converters are presented in this paper. A general averaging method suitable for computer-aided modeling is discussed first. Then, a symbolic analysis package that uses this averaging method to automatically generate an analytical averaged model for a switching power converter is described. The package is implemented using the computer algebra system Mathematica and can be used for modeling dc/dc power converters employing different switching techniques, including hard-switching pulse-width modulation (PWM), quasi-resonant soft switching, and soft transition. Several examples are provided to demonstrate the applications of the package. Further applications of symbolic analysis methods in power electronics are also discussed.
