Abstract

Natural voltage balancing property is an attractive feature of a flying capacitor converter. In this paper, time domain approach based on stitching piece-wise analytical solutions for consecutive switching intervals is applied to a six-level single-leg flying capacitor converter. The small parameter approximation analysis yields physically meaningful, simple, and accurate expressions for average voltage balancing dynamics giving an indepth insight into parameters and carrier frequency impact for carrier-based phase-shifted DC PWM.
