This paper presents a new way of rearranging the input and output of isolated converters. The new arrangement posses several advantages, as increased voltage range, higher power handling capabilities, reduced voltage stress and improved efficiency, for applications where galvanic isolation is not a requirement. The proposed technique is particularly valuable in power conversion at very high frequencies, and may be combined with other stress reduction methods. Finally, the new arrangements are experimentally verified both on off the shelf converters and on a VHF resonant SEPIC converter. All results are in good agreement with the theory and twice the power handling capabilities and 5-10% higher efficiencies are shown.
