In many electrical applications it is indispensable that the
power converter can operate as a generating or rectifier unit,
and the controller must be able to handle this bidirectional
power flow. An application example is the doubly fed induction
machine, where power can flow in both directions
through the back-to-back (rectifier+inverter) converter connected
to the rotor. Since the aim of the control scheme
is to keep the intermediate dc-bus to a constant voltage,
the rectifier’s load current can have any sign. The problem
we want to study in this work involves simultaneous mean
value-output voltage regulation in the dc-side and power factor
compensation in the ac-side for a boost-like full-bridge
