In this paper, a new family of zero-voltage-transition bidirectional converters using coupled inductors is introduced. By applying two auxiliary switches and coupled inductors, soft-switching condition is achieved for all semiconductor elements regardless of the power flow direction. Moreover, the presence of coupled inductors provides significant reduction in the converter volume, since all the converter inductors are implemented on a single core. Also, all semiconductor elements benefit from soft-switching condition in full duty cycle range, and thus, high efficiency is achieved for full line voltage range. No extra voltage and current stresses on the main switches and the ease of control are the other properties of the proposed converters. The proposed bidirectional buck and boost converter is fully analyzed for both buck and boost operating modes. The validity of the theoretical analysis is justified using the experimental results of a 240-W 50-100-V prototype converter.
