Abstract
As the most developed form of renewable energy, wind power continues to be a focus of academia and industry. Large-scale offshore wind farms are preferred for environment and economic consideration. High voltage DC (HVDC) transmission system has many advantages over high voltage AC (HVAC) for the growing distance from offshore wind farms to the shore (>100 km). As the essential part of HVDC system, DC/DC converter draws much research attention. Soft switching DC/DC converter with voltage-fed/current-fed topology is found most suitable for this application, for it can significantly reduce the switching loss at large operation range, allowing for higher operation frequency and smaller magnetic components.
