 Abstract

In order to control the output voltage in a dual active bridge converter, this paper establishes a theoretical inductor current equation for a dual-pulse-width-modulation scheme that ensures low switching loss. It also proposes a modulation strategy that minimizes conduction loss. When compared to the conventional single-pulse-width-modulation strategy, the proposed approach can reduce the inductor current RMS and improve efficiency in the low power region, as verified through simulation and experimental results.
