High-performance power conversion equipment is currently gaining an increasing interest for aircraft applications. In particular, isolated bidirectional dc/dc converters are often proposed for modern aircraft distribution systems. A current-fed isolated dc/dc converter, named active-clamp active-bridge topology, is identified as the most promising for the proposed application, interfacing a 270-V dc network with a 28-V dc network. A comparison between the selected topology and the well-known dual-active-bridge topology has been carried out and an experimental prototype has been manufactured for the selected conversion architecture. Simulation and experimental results are provided in order to validate the tradeoff and the design of the proposed converter.
