Offshore wind farm with an internal medium-voltage dc (MVDC)-grid collection connected HVDC transmission may be an option to harvest offshore wind energy. High-power MV dc/dc converters with high-step-up conversion ratios are the key components for the internal MVDC grid. In this paper, a high-efficiency step-up resonant switched-capacitor converter for… CONTINUE READING
