Proposal and Analyses of Resonant Bilateral Converter Employing Simple Zero Current Switches

Abstract

With the development of devices for high performance, the circuit technologies have been also studied. One of the main streams concerns a soft switching technology to mitigate switching stress, leading to the reduction in switching losses or electro-magnetic noise. On the other hand, as a characterized orthodox technology, the existing chopper circuit is used for the electric vehicles, etc.. Such technologies have a tendency to go out of vogue as power supplies for such vehicles. However, as a boost chopper for the battery charger for an electric vehicle, those technologies become a main stream, where a bilateral function is required. With the foregoing in mind, the authors have devised and analyzed the bilateral chopper using the soft-switch technology, which could be applied to a battery charger for an electric vehicle or similar.
