  • Stabilizing effects of load subsystem in multi-stage dc-to-dc power conversion systems

    This paper investigates the impacts of the load subsystem on stability and performance of the upstream converter in multi-stage dc-to-dc power conversion systems. The paper demonstrates that an appropriate load subsystem could offer both stability and predictable performance for the upstream converter that was at the brink of instability before being coupled with the load subsystem. This stabilizing effects of the load subsystem are theoretically analyzed and experimentally validated using a two-stage power conversion system, consisting of an upstream boost converter, downstream buck converter, and two filter stages. The results of this paper can be used to stabilize the upstream converter that was initially well designed but later became destabilized due to the detrimental interaction stemming from unknown source subsystems.

  • Electrodeposited Nanolaminated CoNiFe Cores for Ultracompact DC–DC Power Conversion

    Laminated metallic alloy cores (i.e., alternating layers of thin film metallic alloy and insulating material) of appropriate lamination thickness enable suppression of eddy current losses at high frequencies. Magnetic cores comprised of many such laminations yield substantial overall magnetic volume, thereby enabling high-power operation. Previously, we reported nanolaminated permalloy (Ni80Fe20) cores based on a sequential electrodeposition technique, demonstrating negligible eddy current losses at peak flux densities up to 0.5 T and operating at megahertz frequencies. This paper demonstrates improved performance of nanolaminated cores comprising tens to hundreds of layers of 300-500-nm-thick CoNiFe films that exhibit superior magnetic properties (e.g., higher saturation flux density and lower coercivity) than permalloy. Nanolaminated CoNiFe cores can be operated up to a peak flux density of 0.9 T, demonstrating improved power handling capacity and exhibiting 30% reduced volumetric core loss, attributed to lowered hysteresis losses compared to the nanolaminated permalloy core of the same geometry. Operating these cores in a buck dc-dc power converter at a switching frequency of 1 MHz, the nanolaminated CoNiFe cores achieved a conversion efficiency exceeding 90% at output power levels up to 7 W, compared to an achieved permalloy core conversion efficiency below 86% at 6 W.

  • AC/DC power conversion interface for self-excited induction generator

    A new AC/DC power conversion interface for the self-excited induction generator (SEIG) is proposed here. The proposed AC/DC conversion interface includes an excitation system and a diode rectifier connected in parallel. The variable frequency AC power generated by the SEIG is converted into DC power by the diode rectifier. The DC power of the diode rectifier can charge a battery set and supply DC loads or be further converted into fixed-frequency AC power by an inverter for AC loads. The DC voltage is expected to be regulated in the above applications. The excitation system supplies an exciting reactive current to maintain the amplitude of the SEIG output voltage to be a constant value. Moreover, it can also serve as an active power filter to suppress the harmonic current generated by the diode rectifier. The excitation system is composed of an AC power capacitor and a power converter connected in series. The AC power capacitor is adapted to provide a basic reactive power, and it can also reduce the voltage rating and the capacity of the power converter. The salient point of the proposed AC/DC power conversion interface is that the capacity of the power converter in the AC/DC power conversion interface can be minimised, and the power loss of the AC/DC power conversion interface can also be reduced. A prototype is developed and tested to verify the performance of the proposed AC/DC power conversion interface.

  • A conduction band control AC-DC Buck converter for a high efficiency and high power density adapter

    This paper proposes a new control method for an AC-DC Buck converter which is utilized as a front-end converter of a 2-stage high power density adapter. It presents a theoretical analysis, a design consideration, and experimental results. In the conventional adapter applications, 2-stage configuration shows higher power transfer efficiency and higher power density than those of the single stage flyback converter. In the 2-stage AC-DC converter, the boost converter is widely used as a front-end converter. It provides continuous input current and power factor correction. However, an efficiency variation between high AC line and low AC line is large. On the other hand, the proposed conduction band control method for a buck front-end converter has an advantage of small efficiency variation. In the proposed control method, switching operation is determined by a band control voltage which represents output load condition, and an AC line voltage. In half of line cycle, if the instantaneous line voltage is lower than the band control voltage, the buck converter operates and transfers power to the downstream converter. On the contrary, if the instantaneous line voltage is higher than the band control voltage, the buck converter stops switching operation. Thus, the proposed control method reduces switching loss under high AC line and light load condition. A 60W prototype which is configured the buck and LLC converter with the proposed control method is experimented on to verify the validity of the proposed system. The prototype shows 92.16% of AC-DC overall efficiency and 20.19 W/in<sup>3</sup> of power density.

  • Study of AC-DC converters with isolated transformers applied to high frequency AC-DC power conversion

    At high frequency, such as 50 kHz, the behaviors of isolated transformers and diodes in rectifiers are considerably different from ones at low frequency, such as 50 Hz. The analysis and the experiment in this paper show that it suffers from poor power factor and low power output if conventional AC-DC converters with isolated transformer are directly applied to high frequency AC-DC power conversion. Thus, three topologies of AC-DC converters applied to high frequency AC-DC power conversion are proposed, studied and evaluated, to convert 50kHz/36V AC voltage to DC voltage of 12 V. The analysis and experimental results show that the AC-DC converters with an isolated transformer, a resonant capacitor and a class-E rectifier and with an isolated transformer, a resonant capacitor and a full-bridge rectifier are suitable for 50 kHz AC-DC power conversion. Therefore, this study provides the valuable and reasonable solutions to high frequency AC-DC power conversion.

  • Isolated Bidirectional Grid-Tied Three-Phase AC–DC Power Conversion Using Series-Resonant Converter Modules and a Three-Phase Unfolder

    Power-bidirectional converters are used to integrate energy storage with both dc and ac distribution grids. A modular bidirectional dc-dc converter system consisting of multiple dual-bridge series resonant converter (DBSRC) modules can be reconfigured to extend the system operating range. This paper proposes a modular three-phase ac-dc converter system by adding a line-frequency unfolder to series-connected outputs of two DBSRC modules. The DBSRC modules are controlled to output time-varying currents, which are then reconstructed into sinusoidal ac currents by the unfolder. Compared with a conventional two- stage system with a dc-dc converter and a two-level voltage-source inverter, the DBSRC-unfolder system has smaller dc-link capacitance, negligible unfolder switching loss, reduced line filter size, and faster dynamic response. The system operation and performance are verified on a 1-kW experimental prototype.

  • Stabilizing Effects of Load Subsystem in Multistage DC-to-DC Power Conversion Systems

    This paper investigates the impacts of the load subsystem on stability and performance of the upstream converter in multistage Dc-to-Dc power conversion systems. This paper demonstrates that an appropriate load subsystem can be constructed to provide both stability and intended performance for the upstream converter at the brink of instability before being coupled with the load subsystem. These stabilizing effects of the load subsystem are theoretically analyzed and experimentally validated using a two-stage power conversion system, consisting of an upstream boost converter, downstream buck converter, and two filter stages. This paper also presents the design procedures for the stabilizing load subsystem, along with the performance verification of the upstream boost converter and the downstream buck converter.
