Abstract

The multi-level flying capacitor topology is a promising technology for future electric aircraft. Hardware-in-the loop co-design can improve design throughput as more complex implementations of this technology are developed. This presentation discusses a comparison of hardware-in-the-loop emulation and hardware prototype results for 3-, 5- and 7-level flying capacitor converters. The fidelity of the emulation is investigated for both dc-dc and inverter operations and we show that, within certain limits, the converter operation can be emulated with good fidelity.
