This paper presents a zero-voltage and zero-current switching (ZVZCS) capacitor-clamped half bridge (HB) three-level dc-dc converter (TLDC), which is well fit for high input voltage dc-dc industrial applications. The maximum voltage stress of the primary switches is limited by the flying capacitor and input capacitors, which is very close to Vin/2. Two unsymmetrical bidirectional switches are used to replace two of the primary switches in a conventional capacitor-clamped HB TLDC, which ensure ZVZCS of the main switches in wide load range. The reverse direction MOSFETs in the unsymmetrical bidirectional switches have low on-state resistance and are controlled with soft-switching mode irrelevant to the load current. Therefore, the additional power loss can be omitted. The current of the flying capacitor is greatly reduced due to ZVZCS operation, which would result in a smaller volume flying capacitor and high system reliability. Furthermore, the current imbalance problem of the power devices is also well solved. The circuit, basic operation principles and some important technical analyses are discussed in this paper, and experimental results from a 1-kW prototype are provided to evaluate the proposed converter.
