Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper presents and analyzes an active energy recovery circuit for the inductive turn-on snubber and capacitive turn-off snubber used on high-power gate-turn-off thyristor inverters. The circuit performs as a simple switched-mode power supply and recovers the inductive and capacitive snubbers energy induced in power inverters back into the dc rail with the aid of an extra switch. The features and operation of the proposed circuit are given and supported by PSpice simulations and experimental results.
