In order to eliminate the circulation power bidirectional full bridge DC–DC converter, power analysis of circumfluence phenomenon exists traditional phase shifting control and dual phase shifting control, a kind of inductor current zero crossing control method is proposed, to completely eliminate the phenomenon of flow power. The operating principle of the inductor current zero crossing control is described and analyzed in detail, and the converter operating status is analyzed, establish the mathematical model of transmission power. The influence factors of the maximum transmission power of the forward and the reverse transmission values are discussed. Finally, the experimental results show that the inductor current zero crossing control is feasible.
