Light load efficiency boost technique for STC

Image credit: Intel
  • Propose a hybrid soft switching control scheme to improve the light-load efficiency of switched-tank converter (STC);

  • Regulate the frequency and phase shift such that the converter is tuned in either zero-current-switching (ZCS) or zero-voltage-switching (ZVS) mode;

  • Built the switching loss model to optimize the soft switching control scheme.
