Design and implementation of an unregulated DC DC transformer DCX module using LLC resonant converter

Alemdar, Şahin
Keysan, Ozan
Traditional high-power centralized front-end DC/DC converter can be replaced with an array of paralleled standardized DC/DC transformer (DCX) modules when load current sharing is accomplished between individual modules. In this study, an LLC resonant converter is proposed as an unregulated DCX module, which has current sharing capability. Current sharing feature is implemented by using the droop current sharing method. A methodical design process is presented for the selection of the resonant tank components. A 500kHz, 100W LLC DCX module having 360-410V input and 12.5-12.1V output is designed and tested. Current sharing performance of the proposed module is demonstrated using a two-module array 200W front-end DC/DC converter.


Design and implementation of an unregulated DC-DC transformer module using LLC resonant converter
Alemdar, Öztürk Şahin; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
A traditional high-power front-end DC-DC converter can be replaced with an array of paralleled standardized converter modules when modular design is applied. Modular front-end DC-DC converters represent many desirable properties such as expandability of output power capacity, redundancy implementation, simplified thermal management, and reduced design cost. However, in order to benefit from modular design, load current sharing must be accomplished among the paralleled modules. In this thesis, an LLC resonan...
Design and implementation of a voltage source converter based statcom for reactive power compensation and harmonic filtering
Çetin, Alper; Ermiş, Muammer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, design and implementation of a distribution-type, voltage source converter (VSC) based static synchronous compensator (D-STATCOM) having the simplest converter and coupling transformer topologies have been carried out. The VSC STATCOM is composed of a +/- 750 kVAr full-bridge VSC employing selective harmonic elimination technique, a low-pass input filter, and a /Y connected coupling transformer for connection to medium voltage bus. The power stage of VSC based STATCOM is composed of water-co...
Waveform Quality Comparison of Scalar PWM Methods for Modular Multilevel Converters
Ciftci, Baris; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2013-11-30)
Modular Multilevel Converter (M2C) is the preferential topology used for high power applications in the recent years. Its high quality of output waveforms and high efficiency make it a powerful alternative to conventional two level converters. This paper gives an output waveform quality comparison of scalar PWM methods, used for M2C switching. It is found that output voltage characteristics are highly dependent on the PWM method used. Therefore, selection of the switching method is an important design issue...
Design and implementation of a 200w microinverter for grid connected photovoltaic energy conversion system
Kavurucu, Semih; Hava, Ahmet Masum; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
As one type of the grid-connected photovoltaic energy conversion systems, micro-inverters (MI, also known as Module Integrated Inverters, MII) are typically designed for residential applications with energy capacities of 3-5 kW and less, in order to provide PV module level energy generation, plug-N-play operation, minimization of the shading effects occurring on the PV module, and flexibility of installation. For the micro-inverter system which can be designed employing variety of topologies, interleaving f...

Bilgin, Hazim Faruk; Ermiş, Muammer (2010-08-01)
This paper deals with the design and implementation of the power stage of a forced-commutated current-source converter (CSC) for use in industry applications of distribution type static synchronous compensator (D-STATCOM). The power semiconductors are switched at 500 Hz according to the switching patterns generated by selective harmonic elimination method for the elimination of the most significant four low-order harmonics. The possibility of using various power semiconductors in CSC is examined both theore...
