The clamp mode (CM) forward zero voltage switching multi resonant converter (ZVS-MPC) with self-driven synchronous rectifier is studied. The loss at the synchronous rectification stage of the converter is analyzed using MOSFET piecewise linear model and is compared with the loss at the conventional schottky diode rectification stage of th econverter. From the results of the analysis, it is known that the use fo MOSFETs as a synchronous rectifier reduces the loss at the rectification stage overthe whole load range comparing the use of schottky diodes as a conventional rectifier in the converter. In order to verify the validit of the analysis, we have built a 33W(3.3V/10A) CM forward ZVS-MRC with self-driven synchronous rectifier, in which switching frequency is 1MHz, and tested. FRom the experimental results, it is known that the synchronous rectification achieved about 1W improvement in the loss at the rectification stage and about 3% in the efficiency at the converter as compared with the conventional schottky diode rectification.
