<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> Half-bridge and full-bridge topologies stress their transistors to a voltage equal to the DC input voltage not to twice this value, as do the push-pull, single-ended, and interleaved forward converter topologies. Thus the bridge topologies are used mainly in offline converters where supply voltage would be more than the switching transistors could safely tolerate. Bridge topologies are almost always used where the normal AC …
