The system analysis, circuit design, and implementation of active clamp based forward converter with synchronous rectifier are presented in this paper. To release the energy stored in the leakage inductor and to minimize the spike voltage at the transformer primary side, active clamp circuit included one clamp switch and one clamp capacitor is adopted in the circuit. Based on the partial resonance with the output capacitor of switch and the leakage inductor of transformer, the main switch is turned on at zero voltage switching (ZVS). The clamp switch is also operated at ZVS operation based on the resonance of leakage inductor and clamp capacitor. The synchronous switches are used at the secondary side to further reduce the conduction losses. The experimental results based on the laboratory prototypes are presented to verify the circuit performance
