The theory of averaging and motion control on Lie groups is applied to the problem of controlling energy transfers between dynamic storage elements in switched electrical networks. The use of these average solutions to control energy transfers is shown for a simple network that models the conversion portion of a dc-dc converter. The methodology is based on open-loop control (combined with feedback if desired) and thus ensures that prescribed energy transfers can be accomplished with a finite number of switchings.
