A Dual Series-Resonant DC-DC Converter
Abstract– A dual series-resonant DC-DC converter with zero voltage switching (ZVS) and zero current switching (ZCS) features is proposed in this paper. The topology consists of two switches and a clamping capacitor on the primary side of an isolating transformer. The two switches are operated in complementary mode under pulse width modulation (PWM) scheme. The secondary side of the transformer is connected to the load through two series-resonant circuits and a half bridge diode rectifying stage, in which the rise and fall slopes of the diode currents are limited by the slope of the currents in the resonant circuits, resulting in reduced switching losses in the diodes. The two series-resonant circuits provide power transfer to the output load without interruption throughout the positive and negative cycles of operation. It is shown that the output voltage of the proposed converter can be regulated using either pulse width modulation control or frequency modulation control. Both step-down and step-up voltage conversions can be achieved using the proposed topology. Programmable system-on-chip is used as the controller platform to implement a 40 W laboratory prototype.
