The work presents a multiphase DC-DC converter aimed to equip a C segment, next generation car having a 42/14 V automotive dual-voltage electric power system. The inverted power flow can be obtained by an additional DC-DC converter working in step-up mode or by using electronic interface based on a bilateral converter topology. The experimental result show that proposed solution has greater efficiency over the entire input voltage range.
