A multi-loop controller for controlling a quasi-resonant converter having a power switch, a filter inductor and an output voltage. The controller includes a sensor circuit for sensing the output voltage of the converter. A detector monitors the filter inductor current of the converter. The output voltage is compared with a known reference voltage to develop a control error voltage when the output voltage exceeds the reference voltage. A comparing circuit then compares the inductor current with the control error voltage and produces a control signal when a predetermination relationship has been detected. Finally, an activating circuit responsive to the control signal turns the power switch on.
