- Current or Power Reference Tracking with Power Electronics Converters

Hi. This is my first post. Thanks to all who give it a look.

I am working on an application that has very stringent power output requirements. There is a rechargeable battery that I am trying to manage through a bi-directional boost/buck converter as is typical of many modern-day electric vehicle control topologies. However, I am finding that due to electrical coupling, trying to control voltage alone to achieve desired power output is giving undesirable results. The truth is that I am interested in tracking power but I have not found anything in the literature that talks about power tracking through DC/DC converters.

Would appreciate any thoughts about the practicality of tracking voltage+current i.e. power, in DC/DC converters.
