4th IEEE International Forum on Research and Technology for Society and Industry
The paper entitled “Bidirectional DC-DC Converter Topologies for Low-Voltage Battery Interface: Comparative Assessment” by A. Abdelhakim, P. Mattavelli, S. Pistollato and G. Spiazzi, has been included in the proceedings of the 4th IEEE International Forum on Research and Technology for Society and Industry !
In this paper, three isolated and bidirectional topologies have been selected and compared to each other, where these topologies are seen as the state-of-the-art topologies for battery-fed systems. The introduced comparison includes the number of used semiconductor devices and passive elements, the rated voltage and current of the different semiconductor devices, the forecasted switching and conduction losses using PLECS, and the estimated volume and power losses of the employed magnetic elements. Furthermore, the comparison includes simulation results using PLECS considering a 1.5 kW power level.
