In this paper, a hybrid dual full-bridge dc-dc converter for radio frequency (RF) power generator application is proposed to overcome the drawbacks of a conventional phase-shift full-bridge (PSFB) converter such as the large circulating current of the primary side and large output filter size. The proposed converter adopts a dual full-bridge hybrid structure with a small series capacitor in the primary side and a full-bridge rectifier with two additional low-voltage-rated diodes in the secondary side. With this structure, the proposed converter has advantages of reduction of circulating current, zero-voltage switching (ZVS) operation of all primary switches, size reduction of the output inductor, and low conduction loss of the rectifier stage. Furthermore, the proposed converter can regulate the output voltage very wide by changing the operational mode according to the output voltage. These advantages result in the improvement of whole load efficiency. The operational principle and analysis of the proposed converter are presented and analyzed. A 3-kW 40-200-V output laboratory prototype is designed and built to verify the feasibility and the effectiveness of the proposed converter.
