Using a current source to improve efficiency of a plasma system
Zabihi, Sasan, Zare, Firuz, & Akiyama, Hidenori (2010) Using a current source to improve efficiency of a plasma system. In Pulsed Power Conference, 2009. PPC '09. IEEE, IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.), Renaissance Mayflower Hotel, Washington, D.C, pp. 1256-1260.
This paper presents the possibility of utilizing a current source topology instead of a voltage source as an efficient, flexible and reliable power supply for plasma applications. A buck-boost converter with a current controller has been used to transfer energy from an inductor to a plasma system. A control strategy has also been designed to satisfy all the desired purposes. The main concept behind this topology is to provide high dv/dt regardless of the switching speed of a power switch and to control the current level to properly transfer adequate energy to various plasma applications.
