The Dual Active Bridge appears as a promising DC-DC converter topology when galvanic isolation and bidirectional power flow are required. Among its advantages, Zero Voltage Switching allows the switching losses to be significantly reduced. For high power applications, the three-phase topology variant may be interesting in order to reach a higher power density, especially when a three-phase transformer is implemented instead of three single-phase transformers. Moreover, the transformer vector group offers a new degree of freedom for the designers. In this paper, the authors present the experimental validation of a 1.2 kV – 100 kW – 20 kHz three-phase Dual Active Bridge converter using two medium frequency transformers and different vector groups.
