## 1. Introduction

## 2. Mathematical Modeling

#### 2.1. DC–DC Buck-Boost Converter

- State 1: ${S}_{T}=\mathrm{ON}$ and ${S}_{D}=\mathrm{OFF}$, for $nT<t\le (n+{D}_{c})T$.
- State 2: ${S}_{T}=\mathrm{OFF}$ and ${S}_{D}=\mathrm{ON}$, for $(n+{D}_{c})T<t\le (n+1)T$.

#### 2.2. Fractional-Order DC–DC Buck-Boost Converter

- A state equation, where each state ${x}_{i}\left(t\right)$ is differentiated to a fractional-order ${\alpha}_{i}$, is given in the case of a generalized state–space model. All states ${x}_{i}\left(t\right)$ are differentiated to the same fractional order $\alpha $ for the commensurate case.
- An output equation depends on the internal states and the inputs, as in the integer case.
