Generally additional leakage inductance and two clamp diodes are adopted into the conventional phase shift full bridge (PSFB) converter for reducing the voltage stress of secondary rectifier diodes and extending the range of zero voltage switching (ZVS) operation. However, the core and copper loss caused by additional leakage inductor can be high enough to decrease the whole efficiency of DC/DC converter. Therefore, a new ZVS PSFB converter with controlled leakage inductance of transformer is proposed. The proposed converter makes both the transformer and additional leakage inductor with same ferrite core by separated primary winding (SPW). Using this method, leakage inductance is controlled by the winding ratio of SPW. Moreover, by using this integrated magnetic component with single core, size and core loss can be greatly reduced and it results in the improvement of efficiency and power density of DC/DC converter. The operational principle and analysis of proposed converter are presented and verified by the 1.2 kW prototype.
