Abstract : Electrical energy from a DC voltage source is supplied through a power switching converter under operational control, to an electrical load in accordance with a soft switching mode implemented by an auxiliary resonant commulated pole inverter. A mode control section having snubber switches connected to the switching converter selectively changes switching operation to a hard switching mode so as to accommodate supply of load current at higher levels to the electrical load.
