A summary of the article is shown below:

For the full-bridge LLC converter, it is necessary to establish a large signal model with low-complexity and high-precision when the current of filter inductor works under the continuous conduction mode (CCM) situation. In terms of low complexity, peak values of resonant state variables and average values of slow state variables are taken as the measured indexes between models and actual converter. Models based on the first harmonic approximation (FHA) are studied in depth because they have lower complexity than the existing models. From prospective of high precision, deficiencies of typical FHA model are explained in the light of harmonic generation mechanism of primary current and influence of Fourier series on the typical equivalent circuit. Therefore, transient process of each metallic oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) and its related fast recovery diode, transient process of Schottky rectifier diodes, piecewise equivalent circuit, appropriate selection of variables, and simplified modified dynamic equations are all considered. Furthermore, the unified proposed model is achieved according to the equivalent principle of indexes between aforementioned improved analyses and proposed model. Numerical results of typical FHA model and proposed model are given in accordance with the key indexes. Then, corresponding experimental results are also presented. Differences of indexes between the two models and the actual converter are compared respectively. Though complexity of proposed model is the same as that of typical FHA model, precision of proposed model is higher than that of typical FHA model.
