A new multiphase resonant converter arrangement with series dual phase in the primary side and parallel dual current doubler in the secondary side, operating as a phase shift controlled current source is presented. Sharing the voltage and current stress among the active and passive components with a high DC input voltage and arc current motivates this structure, which also uses WBG devices to increase the efficiency at high switching frequency. The resulting module is intended to operate in continuous and pulsating mode and can be parallelized to extend the output arc current rate.
