In recent years, the soft-switching techniques have attracted attention for its peculiar advantages such as low swtching loss, high-power density, EMI/RFI noise reduction and so on. Authors have already reported before about quasiresonant DC-DC converter using new phase-shift PWM control scheme. By using proposed control scheme, circulating current is elimineted and ZVS (Zero Voltage Switchig) is achieved with small commutating current. As a result, the conduction losses caused by their currents are substantially reduced.
In this paper, authors apply a proposed control scheme to a quasi-resonant high-frequency transformer link DC-AC converter. As a result, all switching devices in this DC-AC converter can achieve soft-switching with small commutating current irrespectively of inverter mode and rectifier mode. Its operating principle and unique features are described as compared with the symmetrical control scheme of DC-ACconverter. Operating performance of this DC-AC converter in steady-state are illutrated by means of simulating results.
