This paper proposes a zero-voltage and zero-current-switching (ZVZCS) PWM combined three-level (TL) dc/dc converter, which is a combination of a ZVZCS PWM TL converter with a ZVZCS PWM full-bridge converter. The proposed converter has the following advantages: all power switches suffer only half of the input voltage; the voltage across the output filter is very close to the output voltage, which can reduce the output filter inductance significantly; and the voltage stress of the rectifier diodes is reduced too, so that the converter is very suitable for high input voltage and wide input voltage range applications. The converter also can achieve zero-voltage-switching for the leading switches and ZCS for the lagging switches in a wide load range to achieve higher efficiency. The design considerations and procedures are presented in this paper. The operation principle and characteristics of the proposed converter are analyzed and verified on a 400-800-V input and 54-V/20-A output prototype.
