The invention relates in a first aspect to a resonant power converter comprising a synchronous rectifier for supplying a DC output voltage. The synchronous rectifier is configured for alternatingly connecting a resonant output voltage to positive and negative DC output nodes via first and second semiconductor switches, respectively, separated by intervening dead-time periods in accordance with first and second rectification control signals. A dead-time controller is coupled to the resonant output voltage or the resonant input voltage and configured for adaptively adjusting lengths of the dead-time periods via the first and second rectification control signals.
