Analysis and design of a DC transformer (DCX) converter configuration are addressed in this thesis, including component design and efficiency optimization techniques. A 500 W prototype converter is constructed and tested in two operating modes: as a full-bridge DCX or as a dual active bridge DCX. It is shown that the DCX converter has the potential to achieve small size and high efficiency over wide rages of operating conditions
