In this paper, a prototype of a multifunctional controlled three-phase voltage-source bidirectional zero voltage soft- switching PWM converter with three auxiliary active resonant commutated snubber link (ARCSL) is presented for Battery and/or Electric Double Layer Capacitor Energy Storage System (BESS) and Active Power Filter System (APFS). The operating principle of this active resonant snubber-assisted soft-switching converter circuit and multi-functional digital control-based converter system including active rectifier and inverter operation modes are described herein. The effectiveness of Soft-Switching Bidirectional converter system is proved on the basis of simulation analysis.
