This paper investigates a triple-active-bridge converter for an all-electric VTOL(Vertical Take Off&Landing) aircraft, based on the Dual-active-bridge converter, presenting four working scenarios which matching the operating of e-VTOL. The converter adopts a phase-shifting control strategy and decouples the control network. Different targeted settings of the converter system are made for the various operating states of the e-VTOL, and the operating states of the TAB converter in different modes are simulated in MATLAB. The experimental results show that the TAB converter has more diverse operating modes, which can match future e-VTOL use in urban applications.
