This thesis focuses on the design issues of the multiple-output boost full-bridge converter, which is constructed by cascading the boost regulator with the inductor-less full-bridge converter. The design of the boost regulator has been proposed briefly with component selection and compensator design. After that, the inductor-less full-bridge converter is analyzed extensively. In the first place, the operation principle of the inductor-less full-bridge converter is introduced. Later, the effect of parasitic resistance and inductance is analyzed in an L-R series circuit model as step-response, which relates the drop of output voltage to the load current. Then, the effects of the dc blocking capacitor for the unbalanced load condition and unbalanced duty cycle are tackled. The theoretical results are compared with the experimental results and the simulation results to verify the relationship between the output voltage drop and load current. The overall efficiency of the converter is tested under various conditions.

The design of the planar transformer is critical to limit the profile of the converter and the leakage phenomenon. A planar transformer fit for the inductor-less full-bridge converter is designed and analyzed in 3D FEA software. An N-port transformer model is proposed to implement the inductance matrix into the leakage inductance matrix for circuit analysis. Based on this N-port model several measurements to extract the parameters in this model are proposed, where only the impedance analyzer is needed. Finally, the effects of trace layout and encapsulation on breakdown voltage in PCB are summarized from experimental results.
