• Discontinuous conduction mode analysis of phase-modulated series resonant converter

This paper proposes an analytical approach to derive voltage gain for phase-modulated dc–dc series resonant converter (SRC) operating in discontinuous conduction mode (DCM). The conventional fundamental harmonic approximation technique is extended for a non-ideal series resonant tank to clarify the limitations of SRC operating in continuous conduction mode (CCM). The DCM analysis is described in a normalized form defining appropriate base quantities. The converter is analysed both in time and frequency domain to derive a non-linear algebraic function of diode rectifier extinction angle. The root of this function is numericallydetermined using MATLAB and used to predict the dc bus voltage. Analytical derivation of critical load resistance is discussed, which indicates the CCM–DCM boundary condition. Experimental results are presented to validate the analysis
