About 1.3% of world electricity energy is taken over by equipment in data center and the number is about 2% in United States. The higher efficiency power distribution in data center is meaningful for reducing the consumption of resources and reducing CO2 emission; at the same time the higher efficiency power distribution in data center means IT companies or telecom carriers can reduce CAPEX and OPEX, which in return is beneficial to IT consumers. Most traditional data centers use alternative current (AC) power system as shown in the Figure 1: threephase AC voltage main power is handled by UPS (uninterruptible power supply) firstly, a better voltage waveform and backup power provided by battery group are obtained. The output single phase or threephase AC voltage is distributed by PDU (power distribution unit) to each cabinet or rack, where servers or other IT equipment is installed. The power supplies in a server rectify AC input voltage to 12 VDC and then convert it to a much lower voltage such as 1 VDC, which is ultimately consumed by CPUs or other ICs. Figure 1 AC power supply system in data centers It is easy to be found that there are two redundant parts in the AC power distribution system, one is the inverter (DC/AC) in UPS and the other is the rectifier (AC/DC) in sever, the redundant parts decrease the power system efficiency and reliability, also increase the cost of equipment. There are other shortcomings in AC power system such as the difficulty in UPS paralleling, large area occupation. HVDC system is promoted at the end of last century to cope with these problems, the term ”higher voltage DC (HVDC)” is used to identify voltage in an information and communication technology equipment(ICTE) space that are higher than 200 VDC and lower than 600 VDC[2]. Figure 2 illustrates the architecture of HVDC system. Compared with Figure 2, UPS is replaced by HVDC rectifier whose output voltage is a higher DC value compared to 48 VDC, the DC voltage is then distributed by PDU to power supplies in severs, and the followed conversions units are same with those of traditional power system. Figure 2 HVDC power supply system in data centers The HVDC system is much simpler and is composed of less power conversion parts compared to UPS showed in Figure 1, therefore higher efficiency, higher reliability and lower cost can be obtained. Application Note 2 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Introduction Figure 3 shows the advantages of HVDC system compared with traditional power distribution system in data center provided by HP[3]. Figure 3 Advantage of HVDC power system over traditional power system The output voltage of HVDC rectifier is specified differently in different countries, Figure 4 shows some of world-wide DC deployments [4]. 380 VDC HVDC system is widely adopted in many counties and groups, in China, however, an additional much lower voltage classs, 240 VDC is implemented in many data centers. As as result, associated standards, which specify the requirements for HVDC rectifier, PDU, protections, components and so on, have been published in some countries and international group such as China and Europe Union and ITU (International Telecommunication Union). Application Note 3 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Introduction Figure 4 World-wide HVDC deployment In the following, in section 2, the basic information of DC/DC converter of HVDC power system is introduced and the configuration and working conditions of proposed DC/DC converter solutions that are discussed further in the following sections are presented. The detailed calculations of Buck, Boost and LLC converters are shown in section 3. Section 4 compares the inductors and transformers of Buck, Boost and LLC converters in copper loss and magnetic loss. The conclusions of comparisons of different DC/DC converter solutions are shown in section 5, which is intended as an aid for power electonics engineers to choose suitable solutions when designing DC/DC converter of HVDC power system. Application Note 4 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System DC/DC Converter 2 DC/DC Converter As illustrated in the Figure 2, DC/DC converter in a server is connected to the output of HVDC rectifier through PDU, the input voltage of the converter is equivalent to the output voltage of HVDC rectifier excluding the voltage drops caused by PDU and conduction lines. Normal value of output voltage of HVDC rectifier is showed in Figure 4 in world-wide range, which ranges from 240 VDC to 400 VDC. In China, two kinds of HVDC voltage class, 240 VDC and 336 VDC, are piloted in some data centers in recent years. Actually 336 VDC HVDC system in China is termed as 380 VDC system in Europe or America, though there are some differences in detailed specifications. The output voltages and numbers of VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) battery of 240 VDC and 336 VDC HVDC rectifier are listed in the Table 1 and Table 2 according to Chinese standard and company specification [5][6]. Table 1 Main specifications of 240 VDC HVDC rectifier HVDC voltage class Normal rectifier output voltage Range of rectifier output voltage Input range of DC/DC converter Numbers of 2 VDC VRLA battery 240 VDC 204 VDC ~ 288 VDC 192 VDC ~ 288 VDC 120 Table 2 268 VDC Main specifications of 336V HVDC rectifier HVDC voltage class Normal rectifier output voltage Input range of DC/DC converter Numbers of 2 VDC VRLA battery 336 VDC 378 VDC 300 VDC ~ 400 VDC 168 Table 1 and Table 2 list the numbers of VRLA, which is very important because it plays a decisive role in the output voltage variety range of HVDC rectifier. The input voltage range of DC/DC converter is about 100 V for the two HVDC systems as showed in Table 1 and Table 2, and more challenging for many energy conversion companies is that they have to develop the HVDC DC/DC converter that can be compatible to both HVDC systems for cost down and short time to market. In this application the input voltage will be from 190 VDC to 400 VDC. It is very hard to obtain a high conversion efficiency using single topology for such a wide input range during the load range with acceptable cost. Therefore cascaded topology is promoted, on the one hand to increase the efficiency during the whole input and load range, on the other hand to simplify the control strategy. In this application note two cascaded topology solutions- Buck and Boost followed by LLCare analyzed in a 1200 W(12 V/100 A) server DC/DC converter that suitable for Chinese 240 V VDC and 336 VDC HVDC system. Buck and Boost are selected for its simplification in architecture and control strategy and well researched. Certainly other topologies such as Buckboost can also be implemented in cascaded topology for its possibility to realize ZVS, flexible output voltage and other merits, but the cost of the cascaded topology will be higher than Buck or Boost so it isn’t feasible to be applied. LLC is welcome for its excellent performance in high efficiency during the load range and low cost compared with other resonant converters such as ZVS full-bridge PWM converter. The configuration of the cascaded topology can be Buck/Boost followed by LLC or LLC followed by Buck/Boost, the former, as shown in Figure 5and Figure 6, is arbitrarily chosen in this paper because the analysis method and procedure are same for both configurations. One converter (for example Buck) of cascaded configuration should be closed-loop control to get a high-precision output voltage over the input and output range, the other converter (for example LLC) can be closed-loop, semiclosed-loop or open-loop control, thus the whole control strategy of cascaded topology converter is simpler than that of single topology converter.

While half-bridge LLC converter is selected and is controlled to make sure that the resonant converters always work at resonant frequency fres, the two resonant frequencies are set to be equivalent to each other for the two solutions. In order to make it easier to comparison, the inductors of Buck and Boost converter perform at continuous mode and the max. ripple currents through Buck inductor and Boost inductor are assigned to 25% of its average value. Some other presettable working conditions of cascaded topologies are: (1) Working frequency of Buck/Boost: (2) Resonant frequency of LLC: Application Note _ = 80 (1) _ = 130 (2) 6 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System DC/DC Converter The two working frequencies are chosen arbitrarily differently in case of resonating at high frequencies between front and end converters in a cascaded solution and causing system instability and severe EMI noise. (3) The calculation and comparisons between two solutions will be made at five input voltage points according to Table 1 and Table 2, those are: 190 VDC (min. input voltage), 268 VDC (normal input voltage for 240 V HVDC system), 300 VDC (max input voltage for 240 VDC HVDC system and min input voltage for 336 V HVDC system), 378 VDC (normal input voltage for 336 VDC HVDC system), 400 VDC (max. input voltage). (4) The comparison between two solutions will be made at three kinds of output load: 20% load (light load); 50% load (medium load) and 100% load (full load). In the following parts, the performance of Buck converter, Boost converter and two LLC converters following Buck and Boost respectively are analyzed according to these conditions.

So the minimum inductance of Buck converter inductor is − = − ∗(1−min) − ∗_ = − ∗(1−0.375) 0.25∗− ∗80 ≈ 574 uH (8) The inductance of the Buck inductor is assigned to 720uH, that is (9) = 720 Concerning the material and manufacture errors of inductor (generally ±20%), then the current ripple through the inductor and the minimum and maximum current through the inductor can be obtained according to: Application Note 8 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Solutions analysis ΔIL_buck = − ∗(1−) ∗ (10) _ = − − 0.5 ∗ _ (11) _ = − + 0.5 ∗ _ (12) The results from equation (9)~(12) are listed in Table 3.

The power losses of high-side MOSFET of Buck converter include switching loss, conduction loss and Coss loss. The switching loss can be calculated as [7]: + = ∗ ∗ ∗ ( ) (13) 2 Where tri and tfu are the current rise time and voltage fall time during turn on and turn off respectively. Conduction loss is calculated as: = _ℎ 2 ∗ () (14) Where RDS(on) is the conduction resistor of MOSFET at some junction temperature such as 120°C, _ℎ is the rms current through the high-side MOSFETs of Buck converter and is calculated as: 1 −ℎ 2 = 3 ∗ ∗ ( 2 + 2 + ∗ ) (15) As the current through the inductor is illustrated by Figure 8.

It is supposed that: (22) (23) − = 1 = 200 ∗ 10−9 Then we can get the different RDS(on) of low-side MOSFET at different input voltage that can meet the loss requirement according to equation (19)~(23) The results are shown in the following table: Table 5 RDS(on) of low-side MOSFET of Buck converter suitable for the application RDS(on) [Ω] Vin_1=190 VDC Vin_2=268 VDC Vin_3=300 VDC Vin_4=378 VDC Vin_5=400 VDC 0.418 0.2 0.176 0.146 0.14 From Table 5 we can know that the RDS(on) of low-side MOSFET of Buck converter suitable for the application should be smaller than 0.14Ω. The max. voltage MOSFETs have to endure for Buck converter is the max. input voltage, which is 400 VDC for the application. Considering 80% or more voltage derating and voltage spike produced by parasitic parameters, the voltage class of 600V or 650V CoolMOSTM is suitable for the application. Therefore, two paralleled IPP60R099P6 and two paralleled IPP65R150CFD are chosen for high-side and low-side MOSFETs respectively concerning RDS(on) for high-side and low-side MOSFETs and excellent body diode requirement for low side MOSFETs. For IPP60R099P6 used as high side switch of Buck converter, RDS(on) is 0.165Ω at 120°C junction temperature and Eoss (Energy of Coss) is about 4 uJ[8]; for IPP65R150CFD used as low side switch of Buck converter, RDS(on) is 0.29Ω at 120°C junction temperature, and forward voltage drop of body diode is about 0.8V[9].

Also it is feasible to suppose that max. power loss of main switch MOSFET of Boost converter is about 6W, then we can get the RDS(on) of the MOSFET suitable for the application, as shown in the Table 10.

For LLC converter following Buck converter, input voltage is 150 VDC, so the expected turn ratio of primary side to secondary side of transformer is _ = _ 2∗ 150 (34) = 2∗12 = 6.25 The final turn ratio of transformer of LLC following Buck is determined as 6, that is _ = 6 For LLC converter following Boost converter, input voltage is 460Vdc, then the expected turn ratio is _ 460 _ = 2∗ = 2∗12 = 19.167 _ The final turn ratio of transformer of LLC following Boost is determined as 19, that is _ = 19 It is supposed that magnetic cores of the two LLC transformers are same, which means the effective magnetic area and air gap are same. Another critical presupposed condition is that winding number of secondary side transformer is 1(total winding number is 2 for center-taped winding) for the two transformers, which is realized in many server power supplies to reduce the secondary-side winding conduction loss, so the ratio of primary winding inductance of two transformers is 6 _2_ = ( _ )2 = (19)2 = 0.1 _ (35) (36) (37) (38) If the inductance of primary side transformer of LLC following Buck converter is assigned to 80µH, that is __ = 80 (39) Then according to equation (38) the winding inductance of primary side transformer of LLC following Boost converter is 80 _ = __ = 0.1 = 800 (40) _2_ Application Note 14 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Solutions analysis So the peak values of magnetizing currents of two transformers are 150 _ = 4 _ = 4∗130∗103 ∗80∗10−6 = 3.606 __ _ _ = 4 _ 460 = 4∗130∗103 ∗800∗10−6 = 1.103 (41) (42) As it is known that the rms current of primary side of LLC converter can be calculated as __ = 4 1 √ 4 √2 ∗ ∗ 2 ∗ 2 2 + 4π2 (43) Where N is the turn ratio of primary-side winding to secondary-side winding and Lm is the inductance of primary-side winding, is the resistor of output load and can be calculated as = _ (44) _ The rms current of primary-side LLC following Buck converter at different load can be obtained according to equation (43) and (44), as shown in the Table 15.

We suppose that the power loss of high-side or low-side MOSFETs of LLC is 5W, the RDS(on) of high-side or lowside MOSFETs can be calculated () = −_ 2 (48) The max. RDS(on) of the MOSFETs used in the two LLC converters then can be obtained according to equation (33), (45)~(48): ()_max _ = 0.025 (49) ()_max _ = 0.253 50) Where RDS(on)_max_buckLLC and RDS(on)_max_boostLLC are the max. MOSFET RDS(on) of the LLC converter following Buck and Boost respectively. The max. voltage MOSFETs have to endure for LLC converter following Buck converter is 150 VDC in the application. Considering 80% or more voltage derating and voltage spike produced by parasitic parameters, the voltage class of 250 V OptiMOSTM is suitable for the application. However, the max. voltage MOSFETs Application Note 15 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Solutions analysis have to endure for LLC converter following Boost converter is 460 VDC in the application. Considering 80% or more voltage derating and voltage spike produced by parasitic parameters, the voltage class of 600 V or 650 V CoolMOSTM is suitable for the application. Therefore two paralleled IPP220N25NFD and two paralleled IPP65R190CFD are chose for LLCs following Buck converter and Boost converter respectively concerning power loss and excellent body diode requirement. RDS(on) is 0.0388Ω and 0.58Ωat 120°C for IPP220N25NFDand IPP65R190CFD respectively[12][13], then the power loss of each MOSFET using IPP220N25NFD and IPP65R190CFD for LLCs following Buck and Boost converter can be obtained according to equation (45)~(47), as shown in the following table.

As a result the voltagesecond products of the two transformers are same, so the magnetic density change ΔB is equivalent to each other. The two transformers use identic magnetic core (equivalent in volume and Steinmetz coefficients), therefore the magnetic losses are same for the two transformers. If it is supposed that the maximum current density of the windings (include primary side and secondary side) of the two transformers are same, the ratio of cross-section area of primary-side windings of two transformers is 2__ = ___ ___ (63) As it is known that the rms primary-side current of LLC converter is expressed by equation (43), and at most times the equation can be simplified as π ∗ √2 ∗ Application Note __ = 2 (64) 18 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Inductors and transformer Thus according to equation (64), the ratio of rms current through primary-side windings of the two transformers is __ = __ _ (65) _ Then the DC resistance ratio of primary-side windings of two transformers is obtained according to equation (63) and (65) 1 _2__ = _ ∗ _ 2 = __ 2 (66) __ 2 Therefore the ratio of primary-side winding copper loss of the two transformers is _2_ = ( __ )2 ∗ _2__ = ( __ 2 ) ∗ 2 2 =1 (67) We can know from equation (67) the copper loss of primary-side windings of the two transformers are same. As about copper loss of secondary-side windings, the winding numbers the current density of the windings and the currents through the windings are same and therefore the copper losses are same. It is concluded that the power loss of two transformers are same if we choose same magnetic core, current density for windings and same winding numbers for secondary side. Application Note 19 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Conclusion 5 Conclusion We compare the two solutions, Buck followed by LLC and Boost followed by LLC, in three dimensions: occupation of PCB, power loss and the cost of power MOSFETs 5.1 Occupations of PCB by MOSFETs and magnetic elements For the solution of Buck followed by LLC, total eight TO-220 package MOSFETs and four SuperSO8-package MOSFETs are chosen for Buck and its followed LLC converters. The same number and package of MOSFETs are chosen for Boost and its followed LLC converters, so the occupations of PCB by MOSFETs are same for the two solutions. However, for the LLC following Buck converter, the input voltage is only 150VDC, the MOSFETs used in the LLC belongs to the OptiMOSTM series of Infineon Technologies, in which there is more available SMD package such as SuperSO8, DPAK, therefore for high power density application the solution of Buck followed by LLC will be predominant. For the magnetic elements, the magnetic cores and current density of windings are same for inductors and transformers, so the dimensions of inductors and transformers for the two solutions are nearly same. 5.2 Power loss of MOSFETs and magnetic elements We can get the power loss of MOSFETs used in Buck, Boost and two LLC converters according to the previous calculation at different loads and input voltages, as shown in the followed tables.

At light load such as 20% load, the solution of Buck plus LLC will have a low MOSFETs loss compared with Boost plus LLC. At medium load such as 50% load, the solution of Buck plus LLC will have a low MOSFETs loss at low input voltage, with the increase of input voltage, however, the solution of Boost plus LLC will have a low MOSFETs loss. Similar to medium load, when the load is heavy such as full load, the solution of Boost plus LLC will have a low MOSFETs loss compared with Buck plus LLC solution. Figure 11 MOSFETs loss comparison at 20% load Figure 12 MOSFETs loss comparison at 50% load Application Note 21 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Conclusion Figure 13 MOSFETs loss comparison at 100% load Next is about the inductor power loss comparison, as we have calculated the DC copper loss ratio of Buck inductor to Boost inductor as shown in Table 21, the data can be transformed to curve to get a more clear comparison. Figure 14 Ratio of DC copper loss of Buck inductor to Boost inductor at different load and input voltage As show in the Figure 14, Buck converter will have a higher DC copper loss compared with Boost converter if the ripple current through the two inductors and current density of windings are same. And the higher input voltage the higher Buck inductor DC copper loss compared with Boost converter. We have obtained the ratio of magnetic loss of Buck inductor to that of Boost inductor in equation (62), for ferrite material such as 3C95 or PC95 that is widely used in SMPS(Switched Mode Power Supply), the range of is generally from 2.5 to 3 at about 100 kHz working frequency, so the ratio of magnetic loss of the two inductors as a function of α is shown in the following figure according to equation (62) and Table (23). Application Note 22 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Conclusion Figure 15 Ratio of magnetic loss of Buck inductor to Boost inductor 2_1 in Figure 15 represents the ratio of magnetic loss of Buck inductor to Boost inductor when input voltage is 190 VDC, and V2 to V5 represents input voltage of 268 VDC, 300 VDC, 378 VDC and 400 VDC respectively. When input voltage is smaller than 300 V (green, blue and red curve in Figure 15), Buck inductor will have a smaller magnetic loss compared to Boost inductor, as input voltage increase, however, Buck inductor will have a larger magnetic loss compared to Boost inductor, the higher input voltage, the higher Buck inductor magnetic loss compared to Boost inductor if the dimension of the magnetic cores and air gap are same for the two inductors. The two solutions will have same loss of transformers of LLC if magnetic core, winding current density and secondary-side winding number are same. 5.3 Cost of MOSFETs The cost of MOSFETs can be obtained according to the choice of MOSFETs and price listed in Infineon website, as shown in the following table Table 27 Cost of MOSFETs for the two solutions Buck+LLC Boost+LLC Application Note Part Items Number(PCS) Price per part(€) Total cost(€) IPP60R099P6 2 2.76 19.96 IPP65R150CFD 2 1.93 IPP220N25NFD 2 3.07 BSC010N04LSI 4 1.11 IPP60R125P6 2 1.91 IPP65R310CFD 2 1.3 23 14.08 Revision 1.0, 2015-01-26 The Optimal Solutions Suitable for DC/DC Converter Used in HVDC System Conclusion Part Items Number(PCS) Price per part(€) IPP65R190CFD 2 1.61 BSC010N04LSI 4 1.11 Total cost(€) As shown in the Table 27, the cost of MOSFETs of Boost+LLC is smaller than that of Buck+LLC, about 30% cost down is realized according to the price listed in Infineon Technologies website. As a conclusion, the solution of Boost followed by LLC is predominant in the application of HVDC DC/DC converter that suitable for 240 VDC and 336 VDC HVDC system considering medium to high load efficiency and power MOSFETs cost. On the contrary, solution of Buck followed LLC will be good at high power density and high efficiency requirement at light load and low input voltage.
