Zabihi, Sasan, Zare, Firuz, Ledwich, Gerard, Ghosh, Arindam, & Akiyama, Hidenori (2010) A novel high voltage pulsed power supply based on low voltage switch-capacitor units. IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 38(10), pp. 2877-2887.
This paper presents a high voltage pulsed power system based on low voltage switch-capacitor units connected to a current source for several applications such as plasma systems. A modified positive buck-boost converter topology is used to utilize the current source concept and a series of low voltage switch-capacitor units is connected to the current source in order to provide high voltage with high voltage stress (dv/dt) as demanded by loads. This pulsed power converter is flexible in terms of energy control, in that the stored energy in the current source can be adjusted by changing the current magnitude to significantly improve the efficiency of various systems with different requirements. Output voltage magnitude and stress (dv/dt) can be controlled by a proper selection of components and control algorithm to turn on and off switching devices.
