I. INTRODUCTION

ACTIVE clamp forward converter (ACFC) is one of the most

attractive topology for low and medium power applications

where low voltages at high currents are required with higher

effciency. The leakage and magnetizing inductance is utilized

for zero voltage switching (ZVS), which allow a converter to

operate at higher frequency [1-3]. The secondary side power

losses are reduced with current doubler rectifer by minimiz-

ing rms current in the transformer secondary [4]. These topo-

logical advancements to improve the performance are done

on ACFC with half wave rectifcation.

A centretapped full wave rectifer is used at the secondary

of transformer to reduce the size of the output flter [5-7]. In

[5] the steady state design is provided with the analysis of

operating modes. However the literature does not tell about

transient response, bandwidth and effect of clamp capacitor

on dynamic performance of the converter.

The objective of this paper is to present a high frequency

PWM DC-DC converter with full wave rectifer. Also the effect

of input voltage and output current variation on the converter

performance are studied. In section II the operating princi-

ple of Full wave ACFC is outlined as in [5] and the key ideas

are represented. The small signal peak current mode control

model [8] has been developed for ACFC.

There is no unifed model that can predict both the steady

state and dynamic characteristics of the current mode con-

trolled ACFWC. The steady state analysis is provided by

employing state space averaging concept in section III.

Moreover a small signal model based on state space av-

eraging and peak current mode control is established to

investigate the converter dynamic performance. Simulation

results are presented in section IV to verify the theoretical

analysis.

II. OPERATING PRINCIPLE

The basic circuit diagram of ACFWC is shown in Fig. 1. The

DC input voltage V

in

isolation transformer and main switch Q

1

are the basic circuit confguration in the primary side of the

forward converter. The active clamp circuit consists of one

auxiliary switch Q

2

, and one clamp capacitor C

c

. L

m

is the

magnetizing inductance of the transformer; L

r

is the resonant

inductance, which includes the transformer leakage induct-

ance and the external inductance.

In the secondary side the rectifer diodes D

1

and D

2

are used

to achieve full-wave rectifcation. The output flter inductance

L

o

and capacitance C

o

are used to reduce the inductor current

and output voltage ripples. The main switch Q

1

and auxiliary

switch Q

2

in the transformer primary side are operated under

the ZVS condition based on resonance during the commuta-

tion interval. With full wave rectifcation we can reduce the

output inductor ripples and improvement in the bandwidth can

be achieved by utilizing different values of secondary turns

Ns

1

and Ns

2

.

To illustrate the basic operation of the topology the following

assumptions have been made-

a) The Mosfets are ideal with no conduction voltage drop, no

switching loss.

b) Leakage inductance of transformer is zero.

c) There is no dead time between Mosfet on-off transitions.

With all the assumptions there are two modes of operation of

the converter.

It is possible to achieve zero inductor ripple current for bal-

anced ACFWC if D=0.5, which is impractical operating point

due to restriction on duty cycle limit for ACFWC. ACFC can

achieve zero inductor ripple current for D=1 which is also im-

practical. For unbalanced ACFWC zero inductor ripple current

can be achieved if (10) is satisfed.

On simplifying we get

III. STATE SPACE AVERAGING

There are two operating modes of ACFWC in a switching

period, in which converter can be denoted using two linear

state space equations (12, 13), where x is the vector of state

variables, u is the vector of independent sources; A1, B1, A2

and B2 are respective system matrices in each of the two

operating modes.

(n=1,2) (12)

switching period:

where the equivalent matrices are defned by,

The small-signal model is found out by the equations (14) and

(15) as given in [9].

From the above state space model equations, small-signal

ac equivalent circuit model can be formed as shown in fg. 4.

The equivalent circuit of fg. 4 can now be solved using tech-

niques of conventional linear circuit analysis, to fnd out the

converter transfer functions.

IV. PEAK CURRENT MODE CONTROL

In this control method the power switch Q1 is turned on at the

rising edge of clock pulse and turns off at peak current of mag-

netic origin.In this paper the main switch current is sensed,

which is a combination of magnetizing current and refected

secondary current. The equivalent voltage of sensed current

is compared with the processed voltage error and accodingly

duty cycle is varied to maintain the output voltage at a value

set by Vref .

In current mode control the output voltage is controlled by

limiting the peak current through the inductor. To model this,

the relation between controlled current ic and the duty cycle

d can be derived from Fig. 5 in terms of output current, output

voltage, input voltage and magnetizing current.

VI. CONCLUSION

A small signal model for ACFWC has been presented using

state space averaging. The effect of input voltage and out-

put current variation on the performance of the converter

was shown. Improvement in bandwidth can also be done by

reducing the value of clamp capacitance. The small signal

model can be further improved by considering the neglected

parameters.
