This study presents the analysis and results of a technique that allows the conventional series resonant DC/DC converter to work as a step-up and step-down converter. The controller can choose between several novel step-up modes and the traditional step-down mode. These modes are analysed by presenting their DC characteristics. The choice of mode is governed by the converter's main controller. The converter reduces the operation frequency range and maximises efficiency by selecting the appropriate mode for the particular load and voltage conversion ratio case. Experimental results in a 6 kW prototype validate the analysis and the proposed controller. Finally, the presented converter is compared with a step-up fixed mode converter in order to appreciate the advantages.
