A new phase-shifted full-bridge converter with a voltage-doubler-type rectifier for a high-efficiency power-sustaining module of a plasma display panel is proposed in this paper. The proposed converter employs a voltage-doubler rectifier without an output inductor. Since it does not have an output inductor, the voltage stresses of the rectifier diodes can be clamped at the output voltage level. Thus, since no dissipative resistor-capacitor snubber for rectifier diodes is needed, high-efficiency low-noise output voltage can be realized. Due to the elimination of the large output inductor, it features simpler structure, lower cost, smaller mass, and lighter weight. Furthermore, the proposed converter has wide zero-voltage-switching ranges of lagging leg switches with low current stresses of the primary power switches by using the magnetizing current. In addition, the resonance between the leakage inductor of the transformer and the rectifier capacitors can reduce the current stresses of the rectifier diodes and conduction losses. In this paper, the operational principles, analysis, design considerations, and experimental results are presented.
