This paper presents a design and operation strategy for a single-phase single-stage Dual active bridge (DAB) based AC-DC converter. Conventional AC-DC power conversion happens in two stages, an active front end converter followed by an isolated DC-DC conversion stage. Conversion with multiple stages lead to lower efficiency and power density due to presence of an intermediate DC link capacitor and hard-switched rectifier. This paper utilizes a single stage conversion topology where the grid side converter is switched only twice in a line cycle resulting in reduced switching losses. A modulation strategy is discussed which results in unity power factor operation and soft switching. Two separate design strategies are proposed which lead to minimization of the DAB rms and peak of inductor current. Simulation results are presented for a 2.5 kW converter which verify the effectiveness of the design technique. © 2020 IEEE.
