Abstract
Based on the existing AC-AC switched-capacitor (SC) converter, this paper demonstrates a new cascaded AC-AC converter circuit topology with a ratio of 1/2n, which only consists of power switches and capacitors. The converter consists of multi-stage converters and the pre-and post-stage circuits are independent with each other. The principle of the topology and the formula of related parameters, including equivalent resistance, equivalent capacitance and switching loss, are deduced with the port network theory, thus the equivalent circuit is gained in this paper. After the theoretical analysis, simulation models and experimental prototype were established to validate the correctness of the circuit topology. Both simulation and experimental results have verified the effectiveness of the circuit topology and the correctness of the theoretical derivation.
