Abstract

Auxiliary resonant snubber inverters (RSIs) have been proposed as a solution of demands for inverter, which are high efficiency and low EMI. In RSI, zero voltage switching (ZVS) on the inverter main switches is achieved by use of the auxiliary circuit; however, additional conduction loss increases simultaneously. The operating frequency of the auxiliary circuit in RSI can be reduced to a half of switching transition of a main switch when lossless snubber commutation, in which ZVS can be achieved without using auxiliary circuit by using output current, is used. As a result, additional conduction loss can be suppressed. However, in this scheme, ZVS turn-on on main switch is failed near zero output current when dead-time was constant. As a solution for this problem, adjustable dead-time control scheme for RSI has been proposed. Adjustable dead-time control has not been applied to a rectifier with auxiliary resonant snubber circuit auxiliary resonant snubber rectifier (RSR)in the previous work. Thus, adjustable dead-time control is applied to RSR in this paper. This paper shows a control scheme for RSR. Moreover, the effectiveness of adjustable dead-time control by comparing between the adjustable and the fixed dead-time control is described.
