  • Propose a merged H-bridge based STC to serve as the front end non-regulated stage of VRM;

  • Analyze and design a 6-to-1 STC with ZCS operation;

  • A hardware prototype that converts 48 V to 8 V is designed and tested. The maximum output current can reach 28 A, and the peak efficiency is 97.11%.
