Abstract:

Design methods for optimizing efficiency of the series resonant converter SRC operating above resonance are presented. Included in the power loss analysis is the development of expressions for individual component power losses as a function of the transformer turn ratio n, the circuit characteristic impedance Ro, and other design variables. Results of the operating efficiency are graphically represented as a function of n and Ro for a hypothetical SRC circuit with 100W output power and 50KHz switching frequency with discussion of results following.
