Abstract

This chapter presents a brief introduction focusing on the applications and classifications of bidirectional DC–DC converters, review of the control methods for dual active bridge control, and key issues of DAB converters. Bidirectional power flow, galvanic isolation, and wide voltage gain range are necessary for some applications such as energy storage system, automotive applications, SST-based DC fast charger. To achieve wide ZVS ranges and low current stresses for the conversion stages of these applications, the topology candidates and the corresponding power control methods have been a challenge in both industry and research communities. This chapter provides a basic foundation for the whole work, and it gives the goal of this book which is to provide valuable knowledge, advanced control methods, and practical design guides for the high-frequency isolated bidirectional dual active bridge DC–DC converters with wide voltage gain.
