Saad Ul Hasan (Inventor), Graham Town (Inventor)

Research output: Patent

Abstract

A method of reducing electromagnetic interference in a power converter, the impedance source based power converter including a series of switches controlling a series of active, zero and shoot through states of the voltage converter, by means of switch control threshold levels, the method including the step of: (a) driving the switches with an anharmonic modulation of the switch control threshold levels.
