Abstract : This report describes an effort made to determine the feasibility of developing a circuit using power semiconductor devices to duplicate the function of the power transformer. A circuit concept has been developed which duplicates the primary function of voltage stepup/stepdown but does not demonstrate the DC isolation characteristic of normal transformers. Several characteristics of the circuit appear very attractive, such as increased voltage regulation and relatively high efficiency. (Author)
