High-voltage modular power supply using parallel and series configurations of flyback converter for pulsed power applications
Davari, Pooya, Zare, Firuz, Ghosh, Arindam, & Akiyama, Hidenori (2012) High-voltage modular power supply using parallel and series configurations of flyback converter for pulsed power applications. IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science.
To cover wide range of pulsed power applications, this paper proposes a modularity concept to improve the performance and flexibility of the pulsed power supply. The proposed scheme utilizes the advantage of parallel and series configurations of flyback modules in obtaining high-voltage levels with fast rise time (dv/dt). Prototypes were implemented using 600-V insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) switches to generate up to 4-kV output pulses with 1-kHz repetition rate for experimentation. To assess the proposed modular approach for higher number of the modules, prototypes were implemented using 1700-V IGBTs switches, based on ten-series modules, and tested up to 20 kV. Conducted experimental results verified the effectiveness of the proposed method
