Abstract: A switching control strategy to extend the zero- voltage-switching (ZVS) operating range of a Dual Active Bridge (DAB) AC/DC converter to the entire input-voltage interval and the full power range is proposed. The converter topology consists of a DAB DC/DC converter, receiving a rectified AC line voltage via a synchronous rectifier. The DAB comprises a primary side half bridge and secondary side full bridge, linked by a high- frequency isolation transformer and inductor. Using conventional control strategies, the soft-switching boundary conditions are exceeded at the higher voltage conversion ratios of the AC input interval. A novel pulse-width-modulation strategy to fully eliminate these boundaries and its analysis are presented in this paper, allowing increased performance (in terms of efficiency and stresses). Additionally, by using a half bridge / full bridge configuration, the number of active components is reduced. A prototype converter was constructed and experimental results are given to validate the theoretical analyses and practical feasibility of the proposed strategy.
