This paper refers to work evaluating the performance of PI controllers integrated with optimization techniques designed for Single Ended Primary Inductance Converters (SEPIC). With the SEPIC converter, a constant voltage output can be retained while switching a range of dc voltages. Performance of PI controller has been combined with Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) Algorithm, Particle swarm optimization (PSO) Algorithm, Whale optimization algorithm (WOA). In this research, a performance analysis of the SEPIC dc-dc converter controller constructed with the aforementioned optimization strategies is carried out. Statistics proves WOA provides best stability exhibited with fast response when compared to other optimization techniques.
