In this work, a unidirectional full-bridge resonant converter with secondary-side phase-shifted control is addressed. With the variation of voltage gain and power level, this converter may enter into different operational modes, including three continuous current modes and one discontinuous current mode. The details in each operation mode are discussed one by one. The boundary conditions between these modes have been identified. Additionally, the steady-state analysis of all continuous current modes is performed uniformly by using the fundamental harmonics approximation approach. Experimental results based on a lab prototype converter are also included to verify the operation modes predicted by the theoretical analysis. View Full-Text
