In the last 30 years, industrial and academic research work has matured plasma display panels (PDPs) to the successful product level for commercial flat-screen television sets. Along with the development of panel manufacturing technology, recent advances in the development of electronic circuitry drivers have paved the way for achieving better performance, higher efficiency, and lower cost. A substantial number of notable driver topologies have been developed; however, most of the presented works have been focused on their own topology and operational principles without giving overall impressions related with other works. This paper is an attempt to provide insights into these diverse drivers of the PDPs by presenting an overview of the topologies. The driver configurations are classified based on the resonant energy source, the connecting type of resonant networks, and the number of levels of panel voltage. Selected drivers in each class are analyzed, and key structural characteristics are identified. Issues related to the practical implementation are also discussed.
