The novel ARCP scheme soft switching inverter without smoothing capacitor in the input DC voltage side is proposed in this paper. The proposed ARCP soft switching inverter can achieve the zero voltage soft switching transition in the main switch, and the zero current soft switching transition in the additional auxiliary switch, in the same way as the conventional ARCP soft switching inverter. The operation characteristics and performances of proposed ARCP soft switching inverter is evaluated and discussed with experimental results.
