High voltage transformers inherently contain undesirable parasitic reactances. A resonant circuit formed by the leakage inductance and parasitic reflected capacitance, makes various resonant technologies practical for high voltage dc applications. The components of a typical high voltage power stage will be investigated in order to identify these parasitics and determine their influence on converter operation. Proto-type high voltage converters will be designed and built using PWM and quasi-resonant techniques and experimental results will be given.

Dc analysis will be performed for the PWM and the quasi-resonant designs in order to obtain insight into the actual operation of the two converters. The design of the two proto-type converters will be reviewed and design guidelines will be established.
