This paper introduces a new kind of piezoelectric DC-DC converter. A ceramic is used as an energy storage element to replace the traditional inductance. Once resonating, the system describes a cycle at each resonance period taking energy to the source, storing it temporarily and transmitting it to the load with soft switching. A resonator suitable for the… CONTINUE READING
