The Full Bridge converter topology modulated in phase shift is one of the most popular converters used to obtain high efficiency conversion, especially in high power and high voltage applications. This converter topology combines the simplicity of fixed frequency modulations with the soft switching characteristic of resonant converters but, if a diode rectifier is used as output stage, it suffers of severe overshoot voltage spikes and ringing across the rectifier. In this paper, a new… CONTINUE READING
