Soft Switcing techniques have recently been applied in the design of dc-ac converters, in order to achive better performance, higher efficiency, and power density. One of the soft switching techniques uesd in inverters is resonant dc links. These topologies have some disadvantages such as irregular current peaks, large voltage peaks, uncotrollble pulse width, etc. Another soft switching method in inverters is using Quasi –resonant links, which have PWM modulation capability. Inverters with series or parallel Quasi-resonant dc links use several quasi-resonant current or voltage pulses, respectively, to produce PWM modualation. In this paper an inverter with a novel Quasi-resonant series dc link is introduced. This topology enables current source inverters to have characteristics such as resonant pulse peak limition and pulse width controllability. This circuit provides the inverter with two to three ranges of PWM control capability which increases the switching time control in a larger range. Various operational modes of this novel Quasi-resonant dc link is analyesed and then the circuit losses is calculated. Finally, simulation results by PSPICE software is presented to justify the circuit operation. Keyword: Inverter, Soft switching, Novel quasi-series resonant link, increasing control areas, Losses
