Research output: Patent

Abstract

A switch mode pulse width modulated DC-DC power converter comprises at least one first electronic circuit on a input side (1) and a second electronic circuit on a output side (2). The input side (1) and the output side (2) are coupled via at least two power transformers (T1, T2). Each power transformer (T1, T2) comprises a first winding (T1a, T2a) arranged in a input side converter stage (3, 4) on the input side (1) and a second winding (T1 b, T2b) arranged in a output side converter stage (5) on the output side (2), and each of the windings (T1a, T1 b, T2a, T2b) has a first end and a second end. The first electronic circuit comprises terminals (AO, A1) for connecting a source or a load, at least one energy storage inductor (L) coupled in series with at least one of the first windings (T1a, T2a) of the power transformers (T1, T2), and for each power transformer (T1, T2), an arrangement of switches being adapted to switch the current through the first winding (T1 a, T2a) between a first ON-state, a first OFF-state, a second ON-state with a polarity opposite to the first ON-state, and a second OFF-state, and/or being adapted to provide rectified current to the terminals (AO, A1) wherein the at least one energy storage inductor (L) is arranged so as to be charged, when all switches of the switching arrangements are conducting, and the current through the at least one first winding coupled in series to the energy storage inductor is in an OFF- state. The second electronic circuit comprises terminals (BO, B1) for connecting a load or a source, a single arrangement of switches being adapted to switch the current through the second windings (T1 b, T2b) of the power transformers (T1, T2) between a first ON-state, a first OFF-state, a second ON-state with a polarity opposite to the first ON-state, and a second OFF-state, and/or being adapted to provide rectified current to the terminals (BO, B1). The second windings (T1b, T2b) of the power transformers (T1, T2) are connected in series and coupled via the single arrangement of switches of the second circuit to the terminals (BO, B1) of the output side.
