Abstract: Electronic loads are a family of power converters which can be used as a variable impedance load in different applications. This paper analyzes high efficiency zero-voltage electronic loads based on the quasi Z-source converter topology .The proposed topology operate as an ideal current source which enables the operation of the zero input voltage. It can achieve a high efficiency of more than 90% which reduces the system cost. . The validity of this proposed method has been studied by the PSPICE Simulation and prototype experiment.
Keywords: Electronic Loads, Ideal Current Source, Z-Source Converter, Converter.

Scope of the Article: Digital Clone or Simulation
