Usually a large snubber inductance or capacitance is found to be effective in reducing the dissipation in a resistor. It would be more efficient if, after extracting the switching energy from the semiconductor device, to feed this energy somewhere useful instead of dissipating it as a heat. By doing so, the overall efficiency of the converter would be improved. This is the aim of energy-efficient snubber circuits which is presented in this paper.||URI:||https://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/18578||ISBN:||978-1-7281-3349-2||DOI:||10.1109/UPEC.2019.8893471||Rights:||© IEEE
