Create a control algorithm to integrate four each 15kW units to function as a continuous 60kW unit.


Problem Definition[edit]

Background[edit]

The forward converter is a DC/DC converter that uses a transformer to increase or decrease the output voltage and provide galvanic isolation for the load. With multiple output windings, it is possible to provide both higher and lower voltage outputs simultaneously.

Design Goal[edit]

Create a control algorithm for an intergraded converter(consists of 4 individual converters).

Specifications[edit]

100W each converter
12-36V input , 24V output
4 converters total , DC-DC
The intergraded converter should provide 400 W power, and the efficiency should be equal or higher than 94%.

Project Learning[edit]

Advantages of Using LT8310 1 We can avoid some defects of the first version

2 Some of ECE 427 students have used this chip

3 High efficiency and short-circuit overcurrent protection

4 Easily Available
