The LLC resonant converter employing a center-tap rectifier can suffer from a high voltage oscillation across rectifier diodes owing to a leakage inductance of a transformer secondary. The amplitude of this voltage oscillation is varied according to design parameters, parasitic components, and operation regions, i.e., below-resonant region and above-resonant region. To reduce the diode voltage stress, this paper analyzes the voltage oscillation mechanism and presents the design consideration.
