Demand for electrification is booming in both, traditional and upcoming generations of technological advancements. Power conversion systems are crucial aspect of electrification and often constructed by aggregating multiple power converter blocks for high power, performance and reliability of overall electrical system. An advanced control technique is developed is proposed with an aim to optimize system states of heterogeneous power converters within minimum transition time while maintaining feasible stress level on individual power converter. Practical implementation of real-time controller and performance improvement strategies are addressed. Hardware-in-the-loop emulation results validating the method, and the sensitivity analysis of system states as measure of robustness is presented.
