The goal of this project is to analyze and compare different possibilities for the design of the Power Distribution Module for space application that is supplied from the Main Bus which can operate in the two voltage ranges: [45V, 55V] and [19V, 38V] and needs to provide four different outputs: 28V, 1.75A; 5V, 7A and ±15V, 250mA galvanically isolated from the Main Bus. The outputs are not necessary to be galvanically isolated between each other. Two possible approaches are analyzed and compared: design of the system that operates in the wide input voltage range [19V, 60V] that would cover the both operating voltage ranges of the Main Bus and two designs of the system that operates in two different input voltage ranges that correspond to the operating voltage ranges of the Main Bus. Two architectures and, among them, well known isolated (Half-Bridge, Push-Pull, Forward with Active Clamp (FWAC) and Flyback with Active Clamp (FLAC)) and non-isolated (Buck and Synchronous Buck) DC/DC topologies are analyzed and compared in terms of efficiency and size, meanwhile taking care of the cost, design time, reliability and flexibility of the whole system.
