Abstract

© 2017 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland. A study of the fundamental of operation of a three-phase AC-DC power converter that uses Zero-Voltage Transition (ZVT) together with Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM) is presented. The converter is basically an active rectifier divided into two converters: A matrix converter and an H bridge, which transfer energy through a high-frequency transformer, resulting in a modular AC-DC wireless converter appropriate for Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs). The principle of operation of this converter considers high power quality, output regulation and low semiconductor power loss. The circuit operation, idealized waveforms and modulation strategy are explained together with simulation results of a 5 kW design.
