Abstract



This paper presents a non-isolated
three-port DC/DC converter which is optimized to connect a three-wire, bipolar ±380 VDC
microgrid to different sources and loads like photovoltaics, batteries and fuel
cells. A novel control method is used to reduce the switching losses and
achieve an ex­tremely high efficiency over a broad operating range.



Conventionally, pulse-width modulation
(PWM) with a constant switching frequency is used to generate switching pulses.
Yet, in order to reduce switching losses and increase the overall system
efficiency, Triangular Current Mode (TCM) or Criti­cal Current Mode (CrCM)
control is intro­duced to achieve Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) for every
operating point. This also allows the use of higher switching frequencies resulting
in greatly reduced passive component sizes.



Conclusively, a 6 kW prototype DC/DC
converter is presented to verify the proposed control method. The prototype
achieves a peak efficiency of 99.3%.
