In the paper specification of a complex converter designed as an interface between a supercapacitor energy storage battery and other DC auxiliary links, with emphasis on its control system, and some laboratory investigation results, is presented. The converter applied in the solution contains a DC/DC power controller and a DC/AC/DC medium frequency intermediate link with a transformer, permitting good voltage matching.

Specific control of both cooperating converters in accordance with the proposed solution gives the possibility of synchronized and phase controlled operation of DC/DC and DC/AC converters resulting in the impact on the AC current wave shape. In this way AC link switching and conducting loss minimize and improving of interface efficiency have been emphasized.
