This paper introduces the unified equivalent circuit model for modular high voltage(HV) power generation architectures. The HV generation architectures are introduced considering the modularity of key HV components such as transformers or rectifier circuits firstly. An equivalent resister and capacitor circuit network is adopted to model the HV transformer and multi-stage voltage multiplier circuit for HV generation architectures to simplifies the analysis, design and optimization for HV generation architectures. The expressions of equivalent resister and capacitor network in modular HV generation architectures are deduced. Based on the proposed equivalent circuit model, a 400kHz switching frequency 500W 20kV output HV generator prototype based on modular HV architecture is built to validate the equivalent circuit model. The experimental results of HV generator prototype are given finally.
