A new double-ended type zero-voltage switching (ZVS) half-bridge zeta (HBZ) converter employing a double-ended rectifier (DER) is proposed. The proposed DER for the HBZ converter provides a bidirectional powering path in the rectifier. As a result, the improved voltage waveform of the rectifier reduces the output filter size and voltage stresses on rectifier components. Moreover, it offers a wide ZVS range. In addition, to minimize the secondary snubber loss, a simple lossless snubber is adopted. The operational principles and characteristics of the proposed converter are to be analyzed and verified experimentally.
