Abstract

Conventional resonant DC-to-DC converters use silicon controlled rectifiers (SCRs) to drive a series LC resonant circuit. The series L is made up of a separate inductor and the primary of a power transformer. In this method the resonant frequency is limited by how fast the SCRs can be run.
