Solid State Transformer with Integrated Input Stage
In this paper, a solid state transformer (SST) with integrated stages is addressed. The SST has been originally proposed for traction applications, after as an option to face the new requirements of the distributed generation but also suggested in many applications. There are different topologies, from one to three stages; certainly each one with their advantages and limitations. Some challenges for this type of systems are reducing the cost and increasing the efficiency.The components reduction is discussed in this paper, by integrating two stages of the SST; the ac/dc converter and the DAB converter share one leg. The proposed scheme is described and numerically simulated.
