Abstract: Resonant immitance converters (RICs) belong to a newly identified family of the resonant converters exhibiting unique characteristics with the help of which a voltage source can be converted to a current source and vice versa. Therefore, RICs are suitable for applications that demand a constant-current (CC) power supply. A fourth-order T-type RIC topology, T5, is analysed in this paper. Detailed steady-state analysis using fundamental frequency ac analysis is presented providing a detailed insight into the converter characteristics. Analytical results have been used to derive closed-form expressions for calculating the component values and ratings following a converter optimisation. The correctness of analysis is validated by developing and testing a 500 W, 109 kHz laboratory prototype converter.

Keywords: resonant power conversion; dc-dc converters; resonant immittance converters; constant-current.
