A New Family of Non-Isolated Zero-Current Transition PWM Converters

Vol. 16, No. 5, pp. 1669-1677, Sep. 2016



A new auxiliary circuit for boost, buck, buck-boost, Cuk, SEPIC, and zeta converters is introduced to provide soft switching for pulse-width modulation converters. In the aforementioned family of DC?DC converters, the main and auxiliary switches turn on under zero current transition (ZCT) and turn off with zero voltage and current transition (ZVZCT). All diodes commutate under soft switching conditions. On the basis of the proposed converter family, the boost topology is analyzed, and its operating modes are presented. The validity of the theoretical analysis is justified by the experimental results of a 100W, 100 kHz prototype. The conducted electromagnetic emissions of the proposed boost converter are measured and found to be lower than those of another ZCT boost converter.
