switched capcitor switched inductor structer for getting transformer loss

resonance conntact less energy transfered with improved effiency


This paper describes the theoretical and experimental results achieved in optimi
zing the application of the series loaded
series resonant converter for contactless energy transfer. The main goal of this
work is to define the power stage operation
mode that guarantees the highest possible efficiency.
The results suggest a method to select the physical parameters (operation frequ
ency, characteristic impedance,
transformer ratio, etc.) to achieve that efficiency improvement. The research c
larifies also the effects of the physical
separation between both halves of the ferromagnetic core on the characteristics
of the transformer. It is shown that for
practical values of the separation distance, the leakage inductance, being part
of the resonant inductor, remains almost unchanged.
Nevertheless, the current distribution between the primary and the secondary win
dings changes significantly due to the large
variation of the magnetizing inductance. An approximation in the circuit analysi
s permits to obtain more rapidly the changing
values of the converter parameters. The analysis results in a set of equations w
hich solutions are presented graphically.
The graphics show a shift of the best efficiency operation zone, compared to the
converter with an ideally coupled transformer.
Experimental results are presented confirming that expected tendency....

Boost derived DC-to-AC converter with zero voltage switching

In this paper, we present a single-ended DC-to-AC converter with zero voltage sw


itching and output isolation. It is a current fed converter
having variable frequency control to get symmetrical regulated AC output. The tr
ansformer provides electrical output isolation.
Two switches operating in complementary fashion control the operation of the con
verter and provide transformer core resetting.
The resonance of the parasitic capacitances with the magnetizing inductance of t
he transformer and output side inductor causes
zero voltage switching for both switches in order to reduce switching losses. Th
e output has an LCC resonant tank circuit which
controls the power flow and shape of the output AC voltage. Steady state equatio
ns are presented and basic circuit operation is explained.
Simulation results verifying the theoretical waveforms are also presented....
Current-sharing control technique for interleaving VRMs using intercell transfor
mers..
Abstract
Parallel converter architecture using intercell transformers is one of the most
adapted architecture for low-voltage,
high-current and fast transient power conversion applications. Interleaved buck
converter with intercell transformers
main interest is the current ripple reduction in each converter arms which is n
ot the case with non-coupled inductor architectures.
As a consequence, current constraints on switches and inductors are less severe
and lower Joule losses are obtained leading
to a higher efficiency. This paper highlights a fundamental limitation for those
interleaved converters using intercell transformers.
A differential current error through transformer causes flux drift and can lead
to magnetic core saturation. In case of temporary
control failure, arm currents get back to proper balance with a very slow dynami
c response. State-space study allows us to calculate
arm current transfer function and deduce the differential current time constant.
Finally, a stability study with standard filters is presented
and a proper current-sharing loop regulator filter is proposed in order to speed
up system return to equilibrium.
