A new single inductor dual buck full-bridge inverter is proposed in this paper. The inverter is improved on the basis of a dual buck inverter, and it retains the advantage of a no reverse recovery of body diode. The dc voltage utilization rate can be increased by adopting the voltage commutation bridge instead of the voltage-dividing capacitors in the inverter. In addition, comparing with other dual buck inverters, the inverter has just one filter inductor, which can make the volume and weight of the system decreased observably and improve the integration. The controlling method, combining the high- and low-frequency modulation, is adopted to weaken the complexity of control and improve the reliability and stability of the system. The operating principle, characteristic analysis, simulation and experiment are provided in this paper. A 1-kW prototype is established and tested, and the results of simulation and experiment verify the correctness of the theoretical analysis. © 1982-2012 IEEE.
