3.10 Soft switching

Description

March 26, 2021
In this lecture, we will learn:
  • If switches turn on/off with zero voltage/current, then switching loss can be eliminated.
  • This occurs automatically for rectifying devices in pulse-width modulated converters.
  • Soft-switched converters can be operated at higher frequencies.
