Use of IPM within a “Network of Switches” Concept

Apart from the conventional use of IPM devices shown in Chapter 10, there are other topologies that also benefit from using these devices. The main idea behind the topologies presented in this chapter is to split the switched mode control into multiple power switches instead of using a higher power rated device. This was also analyzed in Chapter 14. Multiple switches allow us to introduce more control of the output waveform with benefits in reducing loss and improve reliability. Eventually this would emerge into a new set of high-performance topologies assembling a “network of switches.”
