Title: Design of a bi-directional series resonant converter

Abstract

This paper will develop the circuit theory using Laplace transform techniques for a bidirectional series resonant converter with a shunt loaded inductor. The analysis will form the basis of a bi-directional series resonant converter design that can be fabricated and tested in the future. The proposed converter, because of its zero switching capability when built with advance switches like the MOS-controlled thyristor, can achieve efficiencies approaching 99%. The topology is capable of boost-buck operation without a transformer. Bi-directional power control will be extremely important to a wide variety of areas including electric vehicles, utility power, aircraft power, and shipboard power. Specific applications for bidirectional series resonant inverters include industrial motor controller, voltage regulator for hybrid-electric vehicle engine/generator, motor controller for aircraft actuators or electric vehicle propulsion, and inverter/rectifier for batteries and static Var controller.
