عنوان مقاله [English]
In this paper, a high efficiency DC-DC converter for variable input voltage and high output voltage applications is presented. This converter is specially appropriate for driving travelling wave tube amplifier with a variable input source (i.e. solar panels). The proposed converter consists of a boost converter to remove the variations of its input voltage and regulate its output voltage. Afterwards, a full bridge inverter controls the phase angle between the output inverter voltage and the current. Keeping the value of this angle at zero, the switching losses are reduced. A series-parallel resonant circuit uses the parasitic elements of the transformer as its elements and makes switches work in soft switching conditions. This reduces the converter power losses and increases the efficiency. Simulation results show the behavior of the proposed converter.
