This paper presents a zero-voltage-switching (ZVS) full-bridge dc-dc converter combing resonant and pulse-width-modulation (PWM) power conversions for electric vehicle battery chargers. In the proposed converter, a half-bridge LLC resonant circuit shares the lagging leg with a phase-shift full-bridge (PSFB) dc-dc circuit to guarantee ZVS of the lagging-leg… CONTINUE READING
