The ongoing electrification of the transport sector raises demands for new power electronic solutions. As a consequence, modular converter structures are state of the art for fast charging, since high power and short charging times are required. Multiwinding converter structures can bring several positive advantages, like cost and space reduction. However, the increased complexity due to the magnetically coupled ports needs to be handled. This paper introduces a Multiwinding based Semidual-Active-Bridge converter with separated output voltages. The related design challenges in terms of independent charging voltage regulation are evaluated and design guidelines for the Medium frequency transformer are presented.
