Next-generation advances in stress control strategy will enable renewable energies, such as solar energy, to become more reliable and available. Critical components, such as power electronics, present uncertainties to the system control in malfunctioning process, which reduces the target of more clean energy development and CO2 emission reduction. Thus, developing and harnessing sustainable energy requires mitigating the impact of the variability of the source of energy and the impact of the adaptive stress control deployed for the proportional, integral, derivative (PID) controller to minimize the thermal stress in the power switch insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT). In response to this challenge, a fuzzy linear matrix inequality (FLMI) PID controller proposes initiatives for customizing parameters of PID controller corresponding to the uncertainty of IGBTs. In this paper, the uncertainty of the boost converter has been evaluated in the dynamic of the LMI model and Takagi-Sugino (TS) has applied in closed loop control to overcome the instability of the Boost converter parameters.
