3-5 Level Bidirectional Dual Active Bridge DC-DC Converter
The Dual Active Bridge DC-DC converter is a promising choice to achieve high power density and efficiency for interfacing low- high-voltage batteries of PHEVs and BEVs.
The 3-5L DAB can generate two additional voltage levels, which provides more flexibility for shaping the inductor current which brings advantages.
A modulation strategy has been derived and a prototype DAB converter is realized to verify the 3-5L DAB principle.
Georgios E. Sfakianakis (S'14) was born in Athens, Greece. He received the M.Sc. degree from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National Technical University of Athens, Athens, Greece in 2013.
He is currently working towards the Ph.D. degree at Eindhoven University of Technology. During 2012 - 2013, he was at KTH Royal Institute of Technology for nine months, where he was working on his diploma thesis.
He worked at ABB Corporate Research, Vasteras, Sweden, for nine months (2013-2014) as an Associated Scientist within the Electric Power Systems group. His research interests include the analysis, design, control, and optimization of high-frequency power converters.
