This paper presents a new structure of a power sharing controller for a modular based dual active bridge (DAB) DC/DC converter. The modular topology is based on input-series output-parallel (ISOP) connection of DAB modules suitable for a voltage step down application at medium voltage level. Since DAB has bi-directional power flow capability, this connection would act as its dual input-parallel output-series (IPOS) counterpart in the case of reverse power flow. The proposed power sharing

Results for the proposed controller are justified using a detailed Matlab simulation model.
