Must knows of gate drivers for the ZVS converter
In this training video, soft-switching ZVS converters, including totem-pole PFC and LLC resonant converter, are mentioned to improve all the issues of hard-switching, especially the reverse recovery of the diode. The differences in gate drivers on hard-switching and soft-switching are highlighted and explained. New issues of soft switching, high turn-off current, are also discussed with a strong gate driver to minimize the turn-off loss. LLC resonant converter turn-off loss mechanism is illustrated in-depth.
