An innovative new prototype of high frequency quasi-resonant soft switching inverter with asymmetrical pulse width modulation (PWM) control of duty cycle control (DCC) scheme was discussed. The computer aided design (CAD) procedure of this power electronics appliances using a new inverter topology in the pipeline system was also studied. The results showed that the appliances have various advantages in safety, compactness and rapid temperature response.
