A single-stage soft-switching converter is proposed for universal line voltage applications. A boost type of active-clamp circuit is used to achieve zero-voltage switching operation of the power switches. A simple DC-link voltage feedback scheme is applied to the proposed converter. A resonant voltage-doubler rectifier helps the output diodes to achieve zero-current switching operation. The reverse-recovery losses of the output diodes can be eliminated without any additional components. The DC-link capacitor voltage can be reduced, providing reduced voltage stresses of switching devices. Furthermore, power conversion efficiency can be improved by the soft-switching operation of switching devices. The performance of the proposed converter is evaluated on a 160-W (50 V/3.2 A) experimental prototype. The proposed converter complies with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 1000-3-2 Class-D requirements for the light-emitting diode power supply of large-sized liquid crystal displays, maintaining the DC-link capacitor voltage within 400 V under the universal line voltage (90-265 Vrms).
