A new circuit and a transformer structure is described for a high-input-voltage converter operating at a high switching frequency. The two-MOSFET forward converter is suitable for a high-input-voltage converter. To increase the switching frequency, the reset period of the transformer core flux must be reduced. There are a few methods for decreasing the reset period. Increasing the transformer flyback voltage and reducing its stray capacitance are effective in decreasing the reset period without increasing power loss. A new two-MOSFET forward converter is proposed which uset the increased flyback voltage and a transformer structure to reduce the stray capacitance. The new converter using this transformer provides the basis for a 48-V, 100-W output, 270-V input converter operating at 200kHz with high efficiency (above 95%).
