This paper presents a family of Quasi-SwitchedCapacitor (QSC) dc/dc converters which employs a bidirectional QSC circuit. Comparing with half-bridge and full-bridge converters, the QSC converters feature reduced voltage stress on the switches and a reduced transformer turns ratio. In addition, they also feature bidirectional power flow, galvanic isolation, soft switching, resonant operation, and multi-port capability. For demonstration, two prototypes together with their experimental results are presented, in…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
