    Abstract

    As new wide band-gap (WBG) devices are developed and improved, new topologies and control schemes are required to take advantage of the ultra-fast switching turn on/off speeds that are now available, without the limitations of switching losses and unacceptable EMI from fast switching transitions. This paper presents a non-isolated DC-DC resonant link converter that allows for soft switching over an extended load range that is particularly suited to GaN devices.
