Frequency-Doubler Modulation for Reduced Junction Temperatures for LLC Resonant Converters Operated in Half-Bridge Configuration

P. Rehlaender, R. Unruh, L. Hankeln, F. Schafmeister, J. Böcker, in: 23rd European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications (EPE'21 ECCE Europe), 2021

LLC resonant converters are typically unsuitable to be applied for wide voltage-transfer ratio applications. With a full-bridge inverter, however, they can be operated in a variety of different modulations. Most notably, by permanently turning on one MOSFET and turning off the other MOSFET of the same bridge leg, the LLC can be operated in half-bridge configuration reducing the gain by a factor of two. The resonant capacitor is hereby charged to an average voltage of half the input voltage. In this modulation, however, the switch that is permanently turned on is stressed by the complete resonant current while exhibiting no switching losses. This paper proves that the frequency-doubler modulation can better balance the losses among all MOSFETs and should be the preferred mode of operation favored over the conventional half-bridge modulation. This paper analyzes the beneficial loss distribution, proposes an on-the-fly morphing modulation and discusses potential operating strategies to further reduce the junction temperature. Furthermore, it is shown that this modulation can also be altered to achieve the asymmetrical LLC operation. Experimental measurement results show that the modulation results in a substantial decrease of the maximum MOSFET temperature and shows that the converter can be smoothly transitioned during operation from full-bridge modulation to the frequency-doubler half-bridge operation and back.

LLC Converter in Capacitive Operation Utilizing ZCS for IGBTs – Theory, Concept and Verification of a 2 kW DC-DC Converter for EVs

D. Urbaneck, P. Rehlaender, J. Böcker, F. Schafmeister, in: 2021 IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC), 2021

LLC resonant converters typically employ power MOSFETs in their inverter stage. The generally weak reverse recovery behaviour of the intrinsic body diodes of those MOSFETs causes significant turn-on losses when being forced to hard commutations. Continuous operation in this way will lead to self-destruction of the transistors. Consequently, zero-voltage switching (ZVS) is essential in a MOSFET-based inverter stage. To ensure ZVS, the LLC converter is operated in the inductive region. On the contrary, IGBTs show dominant turn-off losses and are therefore conventionally not applied in LLC converters typically requiring high switching frequencies to achieve low output voltages. However, if the LLC converter is intentionally designed for capacitive operation, zero-current switching (ZCS) is enabled and thus robust and cost-efficient IGBTs can be applied in the inverter stage. The aim of this work is to investigate the use IGBTs in the inverter of an LLC converter. The theory behind the capacitive operated LLC is derived using a switched simulation model and compared with the fundamental harmonic approximation (FHA). The results prove FHA to be useless for practical converter design. Instead, a stress value analysis based on switched model simulations is proposed to the design a capacitive operated LLC utilizing ZCS. A 2 kW prototype for on-board EV applications was built to verify the theory and design approach. The prototype confirms the derived theory and thus the deployment of IGBTs in the inverter stage of LLC resonant converters. Synchronous rectification turns out to require a specific control solution, but if given the resulting efficiency in the most critical operation point exceeds the value of a MOSFET-based (inductive operated) LLC-design of an identical application. Therefore, this concept should be further developed.

A 3,6 kW Single-Stage LLC Converter Operating in Half-Bridge, Full-Bridge and Phase-Shift Mode for Automotive Onboard DC-DC Conversion

P. Rehlaender, T. Grote, S. Tikhonov, S. Mario, F. Schafmeister, J. Böcker, in: PCIM Europe digital days 2020, 2020

Automotive DC-DC converters linking the traction battery to the auxiliary battery are characterized by the wide input and output voltage ranges resulting from the varying state-of-charge of the traction and auxiliary battery. The wide voltage transfer ratio needs to be covered for the entire load range conventionally requiring two-stage converter architectures. Considering a less complex single-stage solution potentially enabling cost and weight advantages, traditional LLC converters are unsuitable topologies since it results in a too wide operating frequency range. Most alternative topology candidates show comparable difficulties. To overcome this issue, the gain range of the LLC with full-bridge inverter can be extended by operation in half-bridge mode for low voltage transfer ratios. Phase-shift operation is utilized for intermediate gains and low loads. This paper describes a detailed design methodology for the resonant tank. The experimental results with a peak efficiency of 96.5 % and a power density of 2.1 kW/l prove the proposed concept.


Two-Stage Automotive DC-DC Converter Design with Wide Voltage-Transfer Range Utilizing Asymmetric LLC Operation

T. Rüschenbaum, P. Rehlaender, P. Ha, T. Grote, F. Schafmeister, J. Böcker, in: PCIM Europe digital days 2020, 2020

An onboard DC-DC converter connects the high voltage traction battery to the low voltage auxiliary battery of an EV. It has to provide power across a wide range of input and output voltages. This paper presents the design and evaluation of an economical two-stage converter concept consisting of a first-stage boost converter and a second-stage LLC converter. While for low input voltages, the boost converter can supply the second-stage LLC with the optimum bulk voltage, for high input voltages, the boost converter is turned off and the LLC regulates the output voltage on its own. Whereas this is unproblematic for high output currents, for low loads high switching frequencies become necessary. For this purpose, the LLC needs to be designed for a wide gain range. Traditionally, this is achieved through a small magnetizing inductance resulting in increased conduction losses. If an asymmetric duty cycle operation is used to cover the low gains at low output current, the LLC can be optimized for a better efficiency. A prototype design proves that the asymmetric duty cycle operation is feasible to achieve a wide gain range at a high efficiency whereas the conventional design achieves very poor efficiencies.


LLC Converter Design in Capacitive Operation utilizes ZCS for IGBTs – a Concept Study for a 2.2 kW Automotive DC-DC Stage

D. Urbaneck, P. Rehlaender, F. Schafmeister, J. Böcker, in: PCIM Europe digital days 2020, 2020

LLC resonant converters generally employ MOSFETs in the inverter stage, which can be of half-bridge (HB) or full-bridge (FB) type. The generally weak intrinsic (body) diodes of the MOSFETs cause turn-on losses when being forced to hard current commutations finally leading to the components self-destruction when operated constantly in this way. Consequently, zero-voltage switching (ZVS) operation is more or less essential in a silicon (Si) MOSFET-based HB or FB. To ensure ZVS, the LLC is operated in the inductive region, i.e. with lagging resonant current. On the contrary, IGBTs show dominant turn-off losses and therefore are conventionally not applied in LLCs typically requiring high switching frequencies to achieve low output voltages. Yet, if the LLC is intentionally designed for the capacitive region, i. e. operation with leading current, zero-current switching (ZCS) enabling IGBTs in the inverter stage can be ensured. This paper explores in detail the LLC in the capacitive operating region and gives design considerations for a capacitive LLC utilizing both robust and cost-efficient IGBTs for an exemplary 2.2 kW automotive on-board DC-DC converter application. The results of a loss analysis show that the LLC resonant converter can be operated well in the capacitive region. In the given case, significantly lower overall and 30 % lower inverter stage losses are achieved in the thermally relevant worst-case comparison with an inductive LLC based on Si MOSFETs.
