The paper describes the development and application of a cyclic-averaging technique for the rapid analysis of high-order resonant power converters. To provide a focus to the paper, particular emphasis is given to a 3rd-order LCC voltage output converter topology. The proposed methodology predicts steady-state voltages and currents throughout the circuit, and provides estimates of the stresses on the resonant circuit components. State-space simulations and experimental results from a 350 V-input/150 V-output converter are used to demonstrate a prediction accuracy comparable with time-domain integration-based techniques is achievable, while requiring only 1/10,000th of the computation time. In addition, a comparison with Spice simulation results shows that cyclic averaging provides commensurate predictions of voltage and current stresses on the resonant circuit components. Issues arising from the stray capacitance associated with the resonant inductor, and the corresponding sensitivity of the predicted output voltage, are also considered.
