Phase-Shifted Full Bridge Converter (Synchronous FETs)


This circuit has a phase shift between the left and right legs on the primary side and provides power to the secondary side only during the overlapping period. Since the duty of each leg is fixed at close to 50%, zero voltage switching (ZVS) operation is possible, which is suitable for high voltage (400VDC series, etc.) and several kW applications. It is often used for EV OBC and server DC-DC. The inductor at primary side is required for ZVS operation.


- Implementation with SJ MOSFETs (primary) and LV MOSFETs (secondary)
- Zero voltage switching (ZVS)
- Phase shift between both half-bridges for voltage / current control.
- Isolation transformer enables large step-down ratios
- Efficiency around 96%
- Frequency: 100..150 kHz
- SJ MOSFETs with robust & fast body-diode required --> PrestoMOS
