Abstract The rapidly growing use of digital control in Distributed Power Architectures (DPA) has been primarily driven by the increasing need of sophisticated Power Management functions. However, specifically designed control algorithms can also be exploited for optimizing the system performance. In this paper we present a new auto-tuning method and system that makes it possible to operate an isolated DC-DC converter at maximum efficiency. The auto-tuning performs an optimum adjustment of both primary side dead time and secondary side conduction times based on the measurement of the input current. It does not require any additional external components since current sensing functions are already implemented for power management purposes. Experimental measurements performed on an asymmetrical driven half-bridge DC-DC converter demonstrate the effectiveness of our solution and its robustness to component variations.
