Normalized analysis and design of LCC resonant converters
Abstract—A normalization of the LCC voltage-output resonant converter performance characteristics, in terms of the tank gain at resonance and the parallel-to-series-capacitor ratio, is presented. The resulting description is subsequently used for the derivation of a design procedure that incorporates the effects of diode losses and the finite charge/discharge time of the parallel capacitor. Unlike previously reported techniques, the resulting normalized behavior of the converter is used to identify design regions to facilitate a reduction in component electrical stresses, and the use of harmonics to transfer real power. Consideration of the use of preferred component values is also given. The underlying methodology is ultimately suitable for incorporation into a software suite for use as part of a rapid interactive design tool. Both simulation results and experimental measurements from a prototype converter are included to demonstrate the attributes of the proposed analysis and design methodologies.
