The application of DC-DC converters is widely approached in several studies to ensure its performance and robustness. This paper proposes the voltage control of a three-state switching cell (3SSC) boost converter in the continuous time. On this occasion, the output voltage is controlled by a Tagaki-Sugeno-Kang (TSK) Fuzzy with integral action, which the gains are obtained using Parallel Distributed Compensation via Linear Matrix Inequalities (PDC-LMI) combined through linear membership functions and activated by the duty cycle and inductor current. This approach aims to reject problems originated by load and input voltage variations and improve the stability response of the converter output voltage. The obtained results of this paper evidences the effectiveness of the proposed controller in the continuous time, reducing the effects of external disturbances and maintaining the stability of the output voltage conforming to the control design characteristics.
