A novel switched-capacitor inverter is proposed. The proposed inverter outputs larger voltage than the input voltage by switching the capacitors in series and in parallel. The maximum output voltage is determined by the number of the capacitors. The proposed inverter, which does not need any inductors, can be smaller than a conventional two-stage unit which(More)
The Class DE inverter offers high-efficiency power conversion under high operating frequency (megahertz order) with low switching noises and low switch voltage stress. It has been applied to dc/dc converters as high-density power sources. Conventional converters with the Class DE inverter are controlled by varying the operating frequency, the switch duty(More)
This paper presents a comparison of two modulation methods for the seven-level switched-capacitor (SC) inverter using series/parallel conversion (SCISPC). The SCISPC is a multilevel inverter which has the less number of switching devices than the conventional multilevel inverters. The level-shifted pulsewidth modulation (PWM) (LS-PWM) was applied to the(More)
This paper presents a new control scheme for a Class DE inverter, that is, frequency modulation/pulsewidth modulation (FM/PWM) control. Further, the FM/PWM controlled Class DE inverter is analyzed and we clarify performance characteristics. Since the FM/PWM controlled inverter has two control parameters, namely, the switching frequency and the switch-on(More)
