Abstract—Hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) technology provides an effective solution for achieving higher fuel economy, better performance, and lower emissions, compared with conventional vehicles. Plug-in HEVs (PHEVs) are HEVs with plug-in capabilities and provide a more all-electric range; hence, PHEVs improve fuel economy and reduce emissions even more. PHEVs have a battery pack of high energy density and can run solely on electric power for a given range. The battery pack can be recharged by a neighborhood outlet. In this paper, a novel integrated bidirectional ac/dc charger and dc/dc converter (henceforth, the integrated converter) for PHEVs and hybrid/plug-in-hybrid conversions is proposed. The integrated converter is able to function as an ac/dc battery charger and to transfer electrical energy between the battery pack and the high-voltage bus of the electric traction system. It is shown that the integrated converter has a reduced number of high-current inductors and current transducers and has provided fault-current tolerance in PHEV conversion. Index Terms—AC/DC rectifiers, control, dc/dc converters, electric traction, energy storage, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug-in HEVs (PHEVs), power electronics, propulsion systems.

I. I NTRODUCTION ONVERSION of conventional hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) [1]–[3] into plug-in HEVs [4], [5] to reduce fuel consumption [2] has been considered by both academia and the automotive industry [6]. The conversion is achieved by either adding a high-energy battery pack or replacing the existing battery pack of HEV to extend the all-electric range [5]. In either case, the high-energy battery pack should be charged from an external ac outlet, as well as regenerative braking, and must supply the stored electrical energy to the electric traction system. AC outlet charging inevitably needs a battery charger [7]– [11] with power factor correction (PFC) [8], [12], which has various configurations based on an ac/dc converter and

a proper voltage-current profile for the high-energy battery pack. The bidirectional dc/dc converter with a proper charging– discharging profile is required to transfer energy between the battery and the electric traction system. In this paper, PHEV conversion is based on the add-on highenergy battery, which can leave the current HEV power system unmodified, and battery voltage is supposed to be relatively lower than the high-voltage bus of an electric traction system. It is assumed that cost, volume, weight, and the number of current transducers and high-current inductors would be increased if the ac/dc and bidirectional dc/dc converters were cascaded in PHEVs. The converter for PHEV conversion should minimize the electrical impact on the existing HEV power system, particularly from the point of view of fault current. The converter has three operating modes, i.e., plug-in ac/dc charging of the add-on battery, boost operation from the low-voltage add-on battery to the high-voltage bus of the HEV, and buck operation from the high-voltage bus to the add-on battery for regenerative charging. It is essential to fairly satisfy the aforementioned considerations. The purpose of this paper is to present the integrated configuration and to demonstrate its feasibility for PHEV conversion. This paper has been organized as follows: The concept of PHEV conversion and the constitution of the proposed integrated converter are shown in Section II. Section III explains three operating modes of the proposed converter. In Section IV, the expected change in loss and efficiency for feasibility estimation is addressed by the comparison of the proposed converter and conventional topologies. Section V presents the simulation and experimental results to evaluate the proposed converter. Finally, Section VI provides concluding remarks and future work. II.
