ABSTRACT

This paper presents a novel control strategy for a Dual Active Bridge Series Resonant Converter (DAB-SRC). The strategy seeks to ensure the stability of the converter over its entire dynamic range while enhances the transient response. Both properties allow the use of the converter in new applications where fast dynamics are required, surpassing the performance of existing feedback loops. Starting from the generalized averaged model of the converter, we propose a nonlinear control strategy by means of Lyapunov’s stability theory. After that, we derive a series of modifications in order to implement the strategy in a microcontroller or a DSP, including a sensorless method to tackle the lack of measurements of certain variables and an adaptive control law to deal with uncertain parameters in the model. The strategy is evaluated in simulations and experiments, employing a commercial converter and comparing the results with other control policies.
