Abstract

A novel topology, Current-Sourcing Push-Pull Parallel-Resonance Inverter (CS-PPRI) was investigated theoretically and experimentally. The proposed power stage is built around a current fed push-pull inverter. The main features of the proposed inverter is a load independent output current and Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS). It is suggested that the proposed CS-PPRI is a viable alternative for realizing electronic ballasts for low and high intensity discharge lamps.
