If you use a single transformer, how do you shut off all the FETs
during current limiting without just letting the transformer decay
down to 0 volts on the secondaries? With a single transformer you will
have to reverse the primary voltage to turn on the other FET.

For a full bridge, I would wind 2 transformers with 2 secondaries
each. That way the PWM control chip can shut off all the FETs.
