Using a hybrid systems approach, we address the practical stabilization of operating points for switched affine systems, ensuring a minimum dwell time and an admissible chattering around the operating point. Two different solutions are shown to induce uniform dwell time, based on time or space regularization. The proposed solutions provide useful tuning knobs to separately adjust the switching frequency during transients and at the steady state. The strengths of the method are illustrated by simulating a boost converter.
