In this paper, we validate the adaptive voltage control strategy for boost converter via Inverse LQ Servo-Control is fitted for photovoltaic boost converter. Our presented strategy is based on an analytical formula of Inverse Linear Quadratic (ILQ) design method, which has characteristic of stability and robust control. We describe the resulting important properties of this design. Also we present the numerical simulations and the stability results in dynamical change of the input voltage.
