The multi-cell converter approach allows to break the performance barriers of conventional systems by leveraging the advantages of using multiple interleaved low voltage and/or low current converter cells. In this digest, a fourth dimension of interleaving is proposed which considers the time dependent degrees of freedom in the control of the entire multi-cell converter system. This new control concept is based on the possibility to decouple the operation of the series connected input stages from the parallel connected output stages by using the energy storage capability of the DC-link capacitors. This digest shows how the 4D-interleaving concept improves the system performance such as the efficiency which will be demonstrated with measurement results on a hardware prototype system in the final paper.
