A DC/DC converter plays a vital role in on-board electric vehicle (EV) charger. Among the many converter topologies, the phase-shifted full-bridge DC/DC converter (PSFBDC) is widely used. For improved efficiency, PSFBDC is embedded with passive auxiliary networks resulting in several unique configurations for achieving soft-switching in entire load range. The architecture of the chosen DC/DC converter configuration should comply with the society of automotive engineers (SAE) standards.

An optimistic method for the selection of switch configuration satisfying the reduced power loss and cost-effective aspects is presented. For demonstrating the proposed method, a 1 kW 100 kHz system with commercially available switches IRFP460, IXFN64N60P, and IPP65R045C7 is chosen and the obtained results are presented.
