Application of Thermal Balance Phase-Shift Control Strategy to Dual-Active-Bridge DC-DC Converter
With the development of the more/All electrical aircraft technology, the dual active bridge converter has been applied to the energy storage device to realize the bidirectional power flow in aircraft electrical system. The power loss of power device in DAB converter affects the operational life of the device and the reliability of the converter. So it is an important performance index to keep the temperature balance for power device in DAB converter. In this paper, the operational mode of dual active bridge bidirectional DC-DC converter in extended-phase-shift (EPS) control is analyzed and verified by experiment, find the reasons for difficult to achieve soft-switching under light load conditions, then proposes a novel thermal balance phase-shift control strategy on the basis of EPS. Experimental methods in this paper are alternation control mode and temperature feedback control mode. The thermal image and temperature was analyzed. The efficiency curve was plotted. The switching waveform was observed. the thermal balance was achieved to verify the effectiveness. and finally achieves the goal for improving the converter efficiency, reduces the devices heat stress, improves the reliability of the DAB converters and increases device lifetime.
Key words: dual-active-bridge / resonant capacitor / soft-switching / thermal balance phase-shift
