— A new zero-voltage and zero-current-switching (ZVZCS) full-bridge (FB) pulsewidth modulation (PWM) converter is proposed to improve the performance of the previously presented ZVZCS FB PWM converters. By adding a secondary active clamp and controlling the clamp switch moderately, ZVS (for leading-leg switches) and ZCS (for lagging-leg switches) are(More)
State-plane techniques in conjunction with piecewise-linear analysis is employed to study the steady-state and transient characteristics of a series resonant converter. With the direct viewing of the resonant tank energy and the device switching instant, the state portrayal provides unique insights into the complex behavior of the converter. Operation of(More)
Conventional off-line power converters with diodecapacitor rectifier front-end have distorted input current waveform with high harmonic content. Typically, these converters have a power factor lower than 0.65. As a result, they cannot meet neither the European line-current harmonic regulations defined in the IEC 1000-3-2 document nor the corresponding(More)
The nature of resonant converter control is discussed. Employing the state portrait, different control methods for series resonant converter are identified and their performance evaluated based on their stability, response to control and load changes and range of operation. A new control method, optimal trajectory control, is proposed which, by utilizing(More)
This paper reviews recent progress in topology, control, and design aspects in three-phase power-factor correction (PFC) techniques. Different switching rectifier topologies are presented for various applications. Representative soft-switching schemes, including zero-voltage and zero-current switched pulsewidth modulated (PWM) techniques, are investigated.(More)
— This paper describes the effect of interleaved dis-continuous space-vector modulation (SVM) in paralleled three-phase systems using three-phase pulsewidth modulation (PWM) rectifiers as an example. At the discontinuous point of the SVM, the phase shift between the switching signals of the paralleled modules generates a zero-sequence excitation to the(More)
This paper presents the analysis and evaluation of the input current in the critical mode single-phase boost power-factor-correction (PFC) converter. First, the switching-frequency ripple of the input current is derived and the differential-mode EM1 filters of the critical and continuous mode PFC rectifiers are calculated and compared. Next, the benefits(More)
—This paper proposes a general design guideline for the voltage regulator (VR) to achieve adaptive voltage position (AVP). All existing control methods are covered for different kinds of output filter capacitors. Based on the small-signal model analysis, the output impedance and system control bandwidth are discussed. Following the proposed design(More)
