4, the average current and dither amplitude according the PWM frequency and duty cycle were estimated from the mathematical model.
vehicle(i)] is the overall composite duty cycle for the i-th type of vehicle.
For the first test, the duty cycle was set to 50%, and the frequency varied from 0.
As can be seen, the switching frequency of the converter in steady state held constant regardless of the variation in the output voltage or duty cycle.

S6 -- Continuous operation--periodic duty type: A sequence of similar duty cycles at constant load separated by no-load--but continuously running--condition.
The output of the SEPIC is controlled by the duty cycle of the control transistor.
Compared with alternative machines, these new models benefit from a 70% smaller footprint, an 80% lower weight and the ability to operate at higher duty cycles: at a 100% duty cycle both machines deliver 300A at 32V while the output can be maintained at 400A/36V by the 4004i and 5004i machines operating at 60 and 80% duty cycles, respectively.

4V on a 25% duty cycle, or 100A at 14V on a 60 % duty cycle.
Using Proportional Control Algorithm an error signal is computed to adjust the PWM controller duty cycle.
The processor computes a duty cycle value that is put out to each gate driver (excluding any duty-cycle adjustments made to balance the current phases).
