A modular DC Zonal Electrical Distribution System DC ZEDS offers advantages in both cost and weight over traditional radial shipboard distribution. In order to equip the next class of surface combatant with DC ZEDS, preparative research includes the design of autonomous DC-DC power converter modules having robust load sharing capability. This thesis examines the utility of current-mode switch control applied to high-voltage DC-DC power converters. A state-space representation for a current-mode controlled buck converter is developed. The system is modeled dynamically using the Advanced Continuous Simulation Language ACSL. System stability and frequency response is modeled using MATLAB. A hardware controller is fabricated to implement current-mode control using available laboratory equipment.
