A GaN-based DC/DC converter for e-vehicles applications
This paper presents a 4 kW GaN-based galvanically isolated bidirectional DC/DC converter suitable for on-board auxiliary power supply systems, interconnecting the HV battery with the LV power system. To enable the trend towards higher levels of electrification, a second LV level of 48 V is introduced to supply the high-power consumers, relieving the 12 V grid on the one hand and/or avoiding using additional costly isolated converters connected to the HV batteries on the other. The built converter prototypes aim to ...
Impact of implementation of auxiliary bias-windings on controllable inductors for power electronic converters
Magnetic devices are an important part of electronic converters. They can be used to control some properties of the converters. There are three different control methods using an auxiliary bias-winding. In the presented paper, the impact of the implementation of the auxiliary bias-winding was studied for mixed biasing. Seven different designs were investigated in small signal measurements and 3D-FEM-simulations. The results were proven by calculated results of equivalent diagram circuits, which have been developed. ...

Review of Flux Interaction of Differently Aligned Magnetic Fields in Inductors and Transformers
Magnetic devices are used in the majority of power electronic applications, e.g. power electronic converters, mains filters or burst/surge protection. Typically, they are the bulkiest and most cost-intensive components. Flux interaction of differently aligned magnetic fields in inductors and transformers can be one opportunity for size and cost reduction. It enables controllable magnetic devices through an additional manipulated variable to improve application design. The presented article gives an overview about ...
Praktische Anwendung von aktiver Vormagnetisierung in transformatorlosen DC/DC-Konvertern
Magnetic devices are used in almost every power electronic system. Therefore, their purpose and with that their requirements can vary in a wide range. The consequence is a large number of options regarding the priority of optimisation. In this work, the focus is on reducing the volume or weight of inductors in transformerless DC-DC converters. Active prmeagnetization is choosed as an optimisation approach. The technique enables an operation of the DC-DC-converter in the Triangular Current Mode (TCM), whereby ...
Interleaved Buck Converter with Coupled Inductors as Auxiliary Bias-Current Source for Controllable Magnetic Devices
(VDE Verlag, 2020-08-26)
This paper presents an Interleaved Buck Converter with Coupled Inductors as a DC-Bias Current Source for Controllable Magnetic Devices, the modular interleaved Buck system supplies a low-ripple current for the auxiliary DC-bias winding of a controllable inductor with different biasing winding disposition in relationship with the main operating flux of the inductor. A 4-phase interleaved Buck converter system was built and inductance measurements where made for different operating current values of the DC-bias and the ...
