This paper presents a new zero-voltage switching (ZVS) control method that is suitable for low-power applications such as three-phase microinverters. The proposed hybrid control method increases the efficiency and power density of the microinverters and features both reduced number of components and easy digital implementation. ZVS is achieved by controlling the inductor current bidirectional in every switching cycle and results in lower switching losses, higher operating frequency, and reduced…
