Switching Method of 3-phase Interleaved Bidirectional DC-DC Converter to Achieve High Efficiency in Wide Load Range Jung, Jae-Hun; Seo, Bo-Gil; Sun, Daun; Nho, Eui-Cheol;
This paper deals with a switching method of a three-phase interleaved bidirectional DC-DC converter to obtain high efficiency in wide load range. The proposed soft-switching method provides ZVS and ZCS at turn-on, and ZVS at turn-off of the switch as well as considerably reduced conduction loss in light load. Simulation and experiment are carried out with a bidirectional DC-DC converter having the power rating of 3 [kW], and those results show the validity of the proposed switching method.
