Mr. Ionel Dan Jitaru will present a novel soft switching technology which can be applied to any classical hard switching topology and converting it to a “true soft switching” topology. In a “true soft switching topology”  the primary switching devices turn on at zero voltage and the secondary switching devices turn off at zero current. The ringing and spikes are eliminated across all of the of the switching elements in primary and secondary. These new soft switching technologies yields superior efficiencies in comparison with LLC topologies due to lower RMS current, and they can operate at constant frequency. The presentation will be highlighted with design examples and experimental results such as 99% efficiency isolated DC-DC Converters server and automotive applications.

Since 1992 Rompower is presenting professional seminars at different International conferences such as APEC and PCIM Europe. The seminars were attended with great enthusiasm by many power conversion emgineers over the years with great reviews. We are presenting several reviews from last year’s seminar at APEC 2019 ,  the seminar was entitled “Latest Trends in Magnetic Technology for High Efficiency and High Power Density”.

Your seminar on magnetics was the single most useful and practical discussions I had at APEC. It takes great technical leaders like you to keep the power electronics field interesting and motivating for the community.

-Peng Xiao, OSRAM

Your tutorial was the most inspiring one I have ever heard

-Dennis Bura, Bosch Research

I enjoyed your seminar on Monday and was intrigued by your presentation.

“Thanks for the excellent presentation on magnetic technology in APEC”

-Jiangbiao He, University of Kentucky

“I was in your APEC2019 conference about ‘Latest trends in Magnetic technology….’ and it was really interesting for me.”

-Antonio Rojas, PREMO S.A.

“I was impressed with the creative ideas you shared in your seminar.”

-Erik Reed, Kemet Electronics

“I very much enjoyed yoru presentation today at the APEC meeting.”

-Bary Zitting, Utah State University Research Foundation

“Thank you for your great seminar. We have learned a lot on the subject from you.”

-Professor Siew-Chong Tan

“It was very informative and mind – boggling presentation to me. I really enjoyed and appreciated it.”

-Shi Chong, Raytheon

“I found your presentation very good, I think actually the best one at this year’s APEC, so I would very much like if you could send the presentation.”

-Klaus V. Kragelund, Grundfos

Rompower will also present a professional seminar titled “Latest Developments in Magnetic Technology for High Efficiency and High Power Density” and a tutorial titled “Latest Developments in Soft Switching Technologies” at PCIM Europe, In Nuremberg Germany in May 3 and May 4th.
