Abstract: A new converter topology is described for applications requiring very low output current ripple. The proposed converter consists of two asymmetric half-bridge converters whose output voltages overlap in a finite interval of time. This converter provides well regulated and smooth dc output without the need of an output filter. The output voltage is regulated by direct amplitude modulation. Unlike the standard interleaved converters, the proposed converter is robust to input voltage and operating duty cycle variations. Furthermore, equal current sharing is automatically achieved under all conditions, thus ensuring full utilisation of the output rectifiers for wide input and output ranges. The circuit achieves zero-voltage turnon for all primary switches and zero-current turnoff for the output rectifiers. An isolated dc-dc converter prototype with 5-V output voltage and 20-A output current has been built to verify the design.
