Fault tolerant operation of single-ended non-isolated DC-DC converters under open and short-circuit switch faults, Article 2013 15th European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications, EPE 2013 ; 2013 ; ISBN: 9781479901166 ; Shahbazi, M ; Poure, P ; Gholipour, E ; Saadate, S ; Sharif University of Technology
Fault tolerant operation of single-ended non-isolated DC-DC converters used in embedded and safety critical applications is mandatory to guaranty service continuity. This paper proposes a new, fast and efficient FPGA-based open and short-circuit switch fault diagnosis asssociated to fault tolerant converter topology. The results of Hardware-In-the-Loop and experimental tests are presented and discussed

In this paper, a new zero-voltage-switching, high power-factor, bridgeless rectifier is introduced. In this topology, an auxiliary circuit provides soft switching for all of the power semiconductor devices. Thus the switching losses are reduced and the highest efficiency can be achieved. The proposed converter has been analyzed and a design procedure has been introduced. The control circuit for the converter has also been developed. Based on the given approach, a 250 W, 400 Vdc prototype converters has been designed at 100 kHz for universal input voltage (90-264 Vrms) applications. A maximum efficiency of 94.6% and a power factor correction over 0.99 has been achieved. The simulation and...
