This paper presents an analysis and modeling of the class-E inverter for ZVS/ZVDS execution at any duty ratio. The methodology is to determine the input current to the inverter analyti-cally under the assumption that it always remains positive. The latter is ensured by proper selection of the input inductance such that the inverter always operates either in (1) the border condition mode or in (2) the continuous conduction mode regardless of the input ripple. Using this input current and applying the boundary conditions, the required input capacitance for the ZVS/ZVDS execution is determined at a specified input/output voltage, output power and load. The analysis shows that the ZVS/ZVDS can be achieved while the input capacitance is selected appropriately. A comparison between the analytical and simulation results is also formulated involving the proposed and other existing models. The simulation results that are provided at different duty ratios demon-strate that they are in a better agreement with the proposed analytical model regardless of the input inductance and the state of input ripple current. The analytical modeling is facilitated by using MA-PLE®.
