Interleaved DC-DC Converter with Wide Band Gap Devices and ZVT Switching for Flexible DC-Link in Electric Vehicle Powertrains

Abstract The following report details the motivation, design, analysis, simulation and hardware implementation of a DC/DC converter in EV drivetrain architectures. The primary objective of the project was to improve overall system efficiency in an EV drivetrain. The methodology employed to this end required a variable or flexible DC-Link voltage at the input of the inverter stage. Amongst the several advantages associated with such a system are the independent optimization of the battery stack and the inverter over a wide range of motor operating conditions. The incorporation of a DC/DC converter into the drivetrain helps lower system losses but since it is an additional component, a number of considerations need to be made during its design. These ...
