High Efficiency Soft-Switching DC-AC Inverter

This project will create a universal design for both standalone and grid-tie operation. It was funded by the DOE Solid-State Energy Conversion Alliance (SECA) from 2002-2009.

Key Features

  • Variable auxiliary switch delay timing control and turns ratio of coupled magnetics, n>1, for high efficiency in wide load range
  • Main device zero-voltage switching (ZVS) and auxiliary device zero-current switching (ZCS)
