This paper proposes a methodology to develop integrated auxiliary soft-switching cells for converters with multiple poles. The integrated cells obtained are a result of a combination of two cells from the same soft-switching technique or even of cells from different techniques, originating hybrid cells. The resulting cells present fewer components, are lighter and present smaller volume than the conventional ones.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
