This paper presents the analysis and the comparison study of a High-voltage High-frequency Ozone Generator using PWM and Phase-Shifted PWM full-bridge inverter as a power supply. The circuits operations of the inverters are fully described. In order to ensure that zero voltage switching (ZVS) mode always operated over a certain range of a frequency variation, a series-compensated resonant inductor is included. The comparison study are ozone quantity and output voltage that supplied by the PWM and Phase-Shifted PWM full-bridge inverter. The ozone generator fed by Phase-Shifted PWM full-bridge inverter, is capability of varying ozone gas production quantity by varying the frequency and phase shift angle of the converter whilst the applied voltage to the electrode is kept constant. However, the ozone generator fed by PWM full-bridge inverter, is capability of varying ozone gas production quantity by varying the frequency of the converter whilst the applied voltage to the electrode is decreased. As a consequence, the absolute ozone quantity affected by the frequency is possibly achieved.
