In this paper, several modular converter topologies based on a switched-capacitor-cell concept are introduced for high-power applications. Two types of switched-capacitor cells, including the full cell and the half-cell, are discussed. The full cell can be used for dc-ac inversion, and the half-cell is utilized in both dc-dc and dc-ac applications. A rotational charging scheme is adopted for the half-cell-based dc-dc voltage multiplier to eliminate the large output capacitor that exists in many traditional switched-capacitor topologies. A soft-switching scheme, which does not require extra components, is adopted to reduce the switching loss and electromagnetic interference. A variable switching frequency control scheme is proposed to realize soft switching for dc-ac inverters. The experimental results on a 2-kW prototype are presented to verify the proposed topologies.
