Resonant Test Circuit for High-Power Cascaded Converter Submodules
2013 (English)In: Proc. European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications (EPE), 2013., IEEE , 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents a test circuit and methodology suitable for testing high-power half-bridge submodules such as would be used in cascaded converters for high-voltage dc converters. The circuit utilizes a series resonant tank and two half-bridge submodules with voltage and impedance cancellation in order to minimize hardware requirements.
