Abstract This study introduces an LCC resonant converter operating on a continuous conduction mode. The LCC resonant converter has the advantage of improving system efficiency, especially under the rated load condition, because it can reduce conduction loss by improving the resonance current shape and switching loss by increasing the lossless snubber capacitance. The proposed LCC resonant converter is applied to various applications, including a 60 kW EV fast charger, a 24 kJ/s high-voltage capacitor charger, and a 20 kV, 20 kW high-precision DC power supply. Experimental results prove that the proposed LCC resonant converter topology can be effectively used as a converter topology for these applications.
