Topological Variations of the Inverse Dual Converter for High-Power DC-DC Distribution Systems 929114
New dc to dc converter topologies are presented which are suitable for high density high power supplies. Topological variations of the basic inverse dual converter (IDC) circuit such as the transformer coupled, the multiphase and the multipulse derivation of the single phase IDC have been analysed and some simulation results have been presented. It has been shown in a recent publication  that the single phase IDC offers a buck-boost operation over wide range without transformer, bidirectional power flow, and complementary commutation of the switches.
The topologies examined in this paper have additional features such as lower device and component stresses, and smaller filter requirements, resulting in smaller size and weight. Some performance and possible applications are also examined.
Finally the IDCs for serial and parallel power distribution, and ac tapping of the IDC are discussed.
