Following the precepts of an ideal dc-dc power converter, the asymmetrical duty-cycle power converter, a zeroswitching loss converter, is, in a demonstrable way, a new direction in dc power conversion. Its benefits include low conduction loss, low EMI generation, and lossless switching. This paper includes conceptual discourse on the nature of the asymmetrical converter, as well as experimental results.
