Master Thesis Project - Investigation of different HV-LV DC/DC Topologies and optimum selection for Automotive


China-Euro Vehicle Technology (CEVT) is making a significant step toward the electrification of cars, and the 12V Power conversion system is a critical system in making this transition possible. A clear understanding of how the DC/DC power conversion works and how different topology and design impacts the performance of the power conversion system is necessary. Therefore, the simulation of different topology models plays a vital role in helping us understand how the power conversion will behave under various scenarios.


The overall aim of the thesis work is to:

  • Perform a literature study on different DC/DC topology models that are being currently used in the automotive industry.
  • Create a DC/DC and HV battery model to simulate the performance of the power conversion system
  • Analyze and compare the simulation result with different topology models.
  • Conclude on what factors have a major impact on the power conversion system performance

Project steps

  • Create a basic step-down DC/DC converter working model and improvise the model with different topologies.
  • Create a basic HV battery model which can discharge based on the load consumption from DC/DC.
  • Design a closed control loop for the DC/DC converter model.
  • Simulate the model with actual test data.
  • Try improvising the model by changing the switching devices, inductors, transformer, and adding snubber (At least 2 improvisations).


  • Interest in vehicle electrification.
  • Knowledge in MATLAB/Simulink/LTSpice.
  • Knowledge in DC/DC and power conversion working.
  • Knowledge in HV battery.
  • Knowledge of Power Electronics, active and passive components.
  • Masters in Electrical or equivalent
  • Able to work independently.

Number of students: 2, please apply with CV and cover letter.

Starting date: January 2023. The duration of the thesis work is 20 weeks
