Abstract

A high frequency AC link isolated three port semi-bridgeless resonant converter is analyzed for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) applications in this study. The proposed topology is established by replacing rectifier lover diodes with synchronous switches. A phase shifted pulse width modulation (PS-PWM) technique adjusts bi-directional power flow between ports. Proposed control technique provides high efficiency by reducing switching losses with zero voltage switching (ZVS) and zero current switching (ZCS) in a wide power range regulation. Compared to integrated PWM converters in a bi-directional mode, the proposed topology reduces the number of converter stages and allows centralized control at high operating frequency. Theoretical and experimental results demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed converter at a full power of 500 W in laboratory conditions.
