Bidirectional DC-DC Converter Current Control

This example shows how to control the inductor current of a Bidirectional DC-DC Converter. To adjust the duty cycle, the Control subsystem uses a PI-based control algorithm. The Bidirectional DC-DC Converter uses averaged switches. To achieve different levels of fidelity, you can use either modulation waveforms, averaged gate pulses, or gate pulses.
