This paper presents a test circuit and methodology suitable for testing high-power half-bridge submodules such as would be used in cascaded converters for high-voltage dc converters. The circuit utilizes a series resonant tank and two half-bridge submodules with voltage and impedance cancellation in order to minimize hardware requirements.
