The UCC29002 load share controller makes multiple smps's share current when pllel'd.
But if the local ground at each smps is different, then the sharing will be compromised.
Why is there no chip which deals with this "different local grounds case".
When many smps's are pallel'd, there is a hugh chance that local grounds will be different.

Clearly a "digital share bus" is needed, even a PWM to analog converter, so that local gnd differences are cancelled out.?
