Novel Zero-Current-Transition PWM Converters

  title={Novel Zero-Current-Transition PWM Converters},
  author={Guichao Hua and Eric X. Yang and Yimin Jiang and Fred C. Lee},
A new family of zero-current-transition (ZCT) pulsewidth-modulated (PWM) converters is proposed. The new family of converters implements zero-current turn-off for power transistor(s) without increasing voltagdcurrent stresses and operates at a fixed frequency. The proposed converters are deemed most suitable for high-power applications where the minority-carrier semiconductor devices (such as IGBT’s, BJT’s, and MCT’s) are predominantly used as the power switches. Theoretical analysis is… CONTINUE READING
