This paper proposes the simple and seamless operation technique for bi-directional LLC resonant converter. Generally, bi-directional operation of LLC resonant converter is complicated and difficult to control. Because, the switching frequency has to be changed across fsr (series resonant frequency) and the switching sequences (the switching timing between high voltage side and low voltage side) has...
Recently, the bi-directional dc-dc converter has been focused on because of the huge demand for diversification of power supply network including battery. The dual active bridge (DAB) dc-dc converter is one of the most popular circuits for bi-directional applications because of its simple structure. However, power efficiency at light load is the intrinsic problem of a bi-directional DAB DC-DC converter...
In renewable energy systems such as the PV system, the batteries are connected to ensure a stable supply of energy. Therefore, the bi-directional power conditioners have a key role in renewable power systems. In this paper, bi-directional LLC resonant converter as the power conditioner is proposed. The ac analysis and operating characteristics of bi-directional LLC resonant converter are investigated.
So far, the operating characteristics of asymmetry type current resonant converter as LLC converter are discussed in detail. However, the detail operating characteristics discussions of symmetry type resonant converter have not been carried out. This paper investigates the AC characteristics of symmetry type bi-directional current resonant converter, and their soft-switching regions are also investigated.
