Parallel resonant DRSSTC

Original poster: Sue Gaeta <sgsparky@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi all,

I was curious if anyone has ever tried designing a DRSSTC using a capacitor in parallel with the primary rather than in series with it. If something like that could work it would have a big advantage that the extreamly high primary current would be between the capacitor and primary, and there would be almost no current throgh the switching devices.

Has anyone ever thought of something like this, or played with the idea with simulation software?

What would be the disadvantage of something like that?
