The resonant converter (RC) is finding wide applications in many space and radar power supplies. Among various RCs LCL, LCC, and LCL-T topologies are broadly used. This manuscript presents a comparative evaluation of steady-state stability of LCL, LCC, and LCL-T resonant configurations. Careful analysis favors LCL RC among the aforementioned three configurations since the stability region is good for the LCL RC over the other configurations. Also, this paper presents a comparative evaluation of proportional integral (PI) controller and fuzzy logic controller for a modified LCL RC. The aforementioned controllers are simulated using MATLAB and their performance is analyzed. The outcome of the analysis shows the superiority of fuzzy control over the conventional PI control method. The LCL RC is proposed for applications in many space and radar power supplies. Design, simulation, and experimental results for a 133-W, 50-kHz LCL RC are presented in this manuscript which provide high efficiency (greater than 89%) even for 50% of load. Efficiencies greater than 80% are obtained at significantly reduced loads (11%). In this paper, the applicability of the Philips advanced RISC machine processor LPC 2148 is also investigated for implementing the controller for an RC.
