Problem Addressed

Resonant power converters enable higher switching frequencies than can be achieved with conventional pulse-width modulated, however, are limited by the sensitivity of inverter to loading conditions. This becomes problematic in DC-DC converter applications where the effective resistance presented by the matching network and rectifier varies greatly with output voltage and current. This problem is particularly severe in applications in which the voltage conversion ratio varies substantially. Such applications include charging systems where the converter must deliver constant power over a wide output voltage range, and regulating converters where the converter must operate over a wide input voltage range and/or the same converter design must be capable of supporting a range of output voltages.
