Abstract

Power electronic transformers (PETs) offer the advantage of size and weight reduction compared to line-frequency transformers by operating at much higher frequencies than line frequency. In this paper, a push-pull-based ac/dc PET has been proposed and analyzed. The PET offers bidirectional power flow between single-phase ac and dc, using the dual-active bridge principle. Such a system may find applications in interfacing plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles to the grid. The proposed PET offers advantages of open-loop unity power factor operation, soft switching of secondary-side converter power switches for all operating points, high power density owing to use of a high-frequency transformer, and high utilization factor (UF), compared to previous work. Analysis has been done for power transfer, UF, and soft switching. Simulation and experimental results have been provided to demonstrate the operation of the PET.
