This paper presents a novel prototype of three-phase current-fed PWM converter with a switched capacitor type resonant dc link snubber circuit, which can basically operate under a principle of zero current soft switching commutation. The optimum PWM pattern-based control scheme proposed by the authors is effectively applied for this active converter. In this paper, the steady-state operating principle of a new converter circuit treated here is described. The practical design procedure of this converter is discussed from a theoretical point of view. The feasible experiment to confirm zero current soft switching commutation of this converter is concretely implemented and evaluated herein.
