Start the design by deciding the LLC power stage component values. The LLC power stage design procedure outlined here follows the one given in the TI application note “Designing an LLC Resonant Half-Bridge Power Converters”. The application note contains a full explanation of the origin of each of the equations used. The equations given below are based on the First Harmonic Approximation (FHA) method commonly used to analyze the LLC topology. This method gives a good starting point for any design, but a final design requires an iterative approach combining the FHA results, circuit simulation, and hardware testing. An alternative design approach is given in TI application note SLUA733, LLC Design for UCC29950.
