This paper proposes an improved zero-voltage-switching pulse-width-modulation three-level converter (ZVS PWM TL converter), which is improved from the original ZVS PWM TL converter just by exchanging the position of the resonant inductor and the transformer, such that the transformer is connected with the lagging switches. The improved converter has several advantages over the original one, e.g., the clamping diodes conduct only once in a switching period, and the resonant inductor current is… CONTINUE READING
