In spite of having many advantages, such as low switch voltage and easy implementation, the voltage-fed dc-dc converter has been suffering from problems associated with large transformer leakage inductance due to high transformer turn ratio when it is applied to low-voltage, high-current step-up application such as fuel cells. This paper proposes a new three-phase voltage-fed dc-dc converter, which is suitable for low-voltage, high-current applications. The transformer turn ratio is reduced to half owing to ??-Y connection. The zero-voltage and zero-current switching (ZVZCS) for all switches are achieved over wide load range without affecting effective duty cycle. A clamp circuit not only clamps the surge voltage but also reduces the circulation current flowing in the high-current side, resulting in significantly reduced conduction losses. The duty cycle loss can also be compensated by operation of the clamp switch. Experimental waveforms from a 1.5 kW prototype are provided.
