This paper proposes a single-stage three-phase rectifier with high-frequency isolation, power factor correction, and bidirectional power flow. The presented topology is adequate for dc grids (or smart-grids), telecommunications (telecom) power supplies, and more recent applications such as electric vehicles. The converter is based on the three-phase version of the dual active bridge (DAB) associated with the three-state switching cell (3SSC), whose power flow between the primary and secondary sides is controlled by the phase-shift angle. A theoretical analysis is presented and validated through simulation and experimental.
