This paper presents a novel bidirectional double uneven power (BiDUP) based dc-dc converter and its design and control methods.
The proposed converter utilizes two dual active bridge (DAB) converters with different power ratings in a special way to realize zero
current switching (ZCS), where both turn-on and turn-off switchings occur under the zero-current condition. A design example of the
proposed BiDUP converter is presented for medium voltage (MV) and high-power solid-state transformer (SST) systems where both
voltage transformation and bidirectional power flow are required. The main features of the proposed converter are to reduce both the
switching losses in power semiconductor devices and the filter inductance requirement simultaneously. To verify the feasibility of the
proposed converter, a simulation study on the BiDUP converter based SST in a distribution system is presented. Furthermore, to
validate the operational principle of the proposed converter, an experimental study using a small-scale prototype is also presented.
