RE: Parallel resonant DRSSTC

Original poster: "Mccauley, Daniel H" <daniel.h.mccauley@xxxxxxxx>

Operation of a DRSSTC is somewhat different. Remember, that most of the energy during a DRSSTC cycle comes from the DC Bus capacitor, not the primary tank capacitor. So even in parallel resonant operation (and i haven't looked into seeing if that would work or not), you will still have the same peak currents in the switching devices. The primary tank circuit is primarily to create a very low impedance as seen by the driver. (e.g. at resonance approached zero impedance)
