Resonant-Pulse Inverters

After completing this chapter, students should be able to do the following:

•  Model BJTs and IGBTs in SPICE, and specify their mode parameters.

•  Model current- and voltage-controlled switches.

•  Perform transient analysis of voltage-source and current-source resonantpulse inverters.

•  Evaluate the performance of voltage-source and current-source resonant-pulse inverters.

•  Perform worst-case analysis of resonant-pulse inverters for parametric variations of model parameters and tolerances.


The input to a resonant inverter is a DC voltage or current source, and the output is a voltage or current resonant pulse. Power semiconductor devices perform the switching action, and the desired output ...
