    Abstract

    This paper describes a Very High Frequency (VHF) converter made with three Class-E inverters and a single ClassDE rectifier. The converter is designed for the US mains (120 V, 60 Hz) and can deliver 9 W to a 60 V LED. The converter has a switching frequency of 37 MHz and achieves an efficiency of 89.4%. With VHF converters the power density can be improved and the converter described in this paper has a power density of 2.14 W/cm3. The power factor (PF) requrements of mains connected equepment is fulfilled with a power factor of 0.96.
