Resonant power converters, Cyclic analysis
Cyclic averaging techniques are applied to the CLL
resonant power converter to provide steady-state
converter characteristics for rapid stress analysis. This is
shown to facilitate the determination of mode duties and
initial conditions through knowledge of the operational
modes of the rectifier at various operating frequencies.
Comparisons are made with FMA-based cyclic analyses,
and Spice simulations, that show, respectively, improved
accuracy and vastly improved execution speeds.
