In this contribution, a 2 kW isolated on-board DC-DC converter for power distribution systems in electric vehicles is proposed. It consists of two power stages which combine a hard-switching buck converter with silicon carbide MOSFETs and a soft-switching resonant converter. A model of the DC-DC converter including conduction and switching losses of semiconductors, copper and core losses of magnetic components is developed and utilized to identify the best design by numeric optimization of… CONTINUE READING
