Abstract

This paper presents the comparison between dissipative RCD and passive regenerative snubber cells for isolated SEPIC converters. The passive cell is
intended to improve the converter’s efficiency by transferring the energy stored in the transformer leakage inductance to the converter output. The analysis for both snubbers are detailed including design guidelines. In order to validate the regenerative proposal and compare its feasibility, experimental verification is performed for both snubbers on a 100 W, 100 V input and 50 V output voltage SEPIC converter operating in DCM.
