This paper discusses the power converter interface between the 400 VDC DC microgrid and the European threephase grid (400 VLL). Therefore, power bidirectional step-down topologies are considered in this paper. Among the various topologies, three single-stage non-isolated topologies are compared in terms of semiconductor losses, magnetic component size and heat sink size. These topologies are the seven-switch buck converter, the SWISS converter and the Y-converter. The comparative evaluation is conducted for a 10-kW converter targeting residential or small commercial applications.

Abstract

This paper discusses the power converter interface between the 400 VDC DC microgrid and the European threephase grid (400 VLL). Therefore, power bidirectional step-down topologies are considered in this paper. Among the various topologies, three single-stage non-isolated topologies are compared in terms of semiconductor losses, magnetic component size and heat sink size. These topologies are the seven-switch buck converter, the SWISS converter and the Y-converter. The comparative evaluation is conducted for a 10-kW converter targeting residential or small commercial applications.
