This paper presents a SPICE macromodel for a generic series-parallel resonant converter circuit. The model is derived from the averaged time-invariant state-space equations obtained from a Fourier transform. The conditions are derived under which all but the fundamental harmonic may be discarded, and the model developed based solely on the fundamental Fourier component. The single macromodel developed has a wide range of validity, and allows dc, ac, and transient analyses to be carried out in a fast, easy, and familiar manner. It also permits the converter to be incorporated alongside its control circuitry into an entire system. The simulation results from the model have been compared to results from a full simulation, and the agreement is found to be excellent, with the macromodel simulation running between 37 and 4700 times faster than the full simulation.
