isolated buck converter idea Answered
I was wonder as a proof of concept, will this work? this schematic below works by charging a high current capacitor which has a small amount of series inductance to temporarily limit the current, and after charging, the switch (similar to the H bridge configuration) dumps the charge into a storage/smoothing capacitor.
By using this method, one can eliminate the cost of transformers in isolated buck converters. A control circuit will control the pulse width into the smoothing capacitor through a negative feedback loop (AKA, as the voltage on the storage cap rises to a target value, the PWM will decrease until the high current capacitor is permanently connected to the DC supply. as the voltage drops, the duty cycle will increase to a 50% maximum.)
I am just curious why this might not work, and if it does, does such a system already exist?
