In this paper we proposed, a new zero voltage switching isolated buck-boost DC-DC converter with active clamp circuit. The active clamp circuit in this converter not only absorbs voltage spikes across the main switch but also provides soft switching conditions for all switches. All switches are Pulse Width Modulation controlled which simplifies the control implementation. One of the main advantages of this converter is operating at high power levels while soft switching conditions exist in both

The experimental results obtained from a 150W prototype circuit operating at 100 KHz are presented to confirm the integrity of the proposed circuit.
