The designed converter maintains ZVS of all switches from full load down to very light load condition over wide input voltage variation. Detailed operation, analysis, design, simulation, and experimental results for the proposed design are presented. The additional auxiliary active clamping circuit absorbs the turn-off voltage spike limiting the peak voltage across the devices allowing the selection and use of low-voltage devices with low on-state resistance. In addition, it also assists in achieving ZVS of semiconductor devices. The converter utilizes the energy stored in the transformer leakage inductance aided by its magnetizing inductance to maintain ZVS. ZVS range depends upon the design, in particular the ratio of leakage and magnetizing inductances of the transformer. Rectifier diodes operate with zero-current switching. An experimental converter prototype rated at 500 W has been designed, built, and tested in the laboratory to verify the analysis, design, and performance for wide variations in input voltage and load. © 1982-2012 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/55974||ISSN:||02780046||DOI:||10.1109/TIE.2012.2194977|
