A Bidirectional LLC Resonant Converter With Automatic

Forward and Backward Mode Transition
ABSTRACT
All the switches in the proposed topology can achieve soft switching. Compared
with traditional isolated bidirectional dc–dc converters such as dual active bridge
converter, the reverse energy and turn-off loss are reduced dramatically, and the
conversion efficiency can be much improved. With the proposed new control
scheme, the power flow direction and output power of the proposed converter can
be changed automatically and continuously, which is attractive for energy storage
systems to balance the energy and to keep the dc-bus voltage constant.

CIRCUIT DIAGRAM

EXISTING SYSTEM
Various bidirectional dc–dc topologies have been proposed and studied in the past
decades. For safety consideration, the galvanic isolation is usually required.
Among these isolated topologies, the dual active bridge (DAB) converter has
attracted lots of research interests due to its simple structure, wide range soft
switching capability, and high efficiency. The DAB converter has two bridge type
switches in each side of the transformer, and the phase shift angle between the
primary side switches and the secondary side switches determines the power flow
direction and its output power. However, it suffers from high reverse energy and

high turn-off power loss which deteriorate the overall efficiency. A lot of methods
have been proposed to further improve its efficiency and performance.

PROPOSED SYSTEM
 In this project, the forward mode means the battery delivers energy to the dc
bus, which is a discharging mode. And the backward mode is a charging
mode.
 This project proposes an improved bidirectional LLC resonant topology with
a new control scheme. All the switches in the proposed topology can achieve
soft switching. Compared with traditional isolated bidirectional dc–dc
converters such as dual active bridge converter, the reverse energy and turnoff loss are reduced dramatically.
 And the conversion efficiency can be much improved. With the proposed
new control scheme, the power flow direction and output power of the
proposed converter can be changed automatically and continuously, which is
attractive for energy storage systems to balance the energy and to keep the
dc-bus voltage constant.
