The recently introduced new optimum topology dc-to-dc converter is extended in a simple and elegant manner to provide dc isolation and multiple outputs. In comparison with the single-transistor isolated forward and flyback converters operated under the same conditions, the single-transistor isolated new converter is shown to have equal or lower stress levels on the transistor, diode, and capacitor ripple current, and can utilize an isolation transformer with lower core and copper losses. Measurements of cross- and self-regulation properties of a two-output 45 W test converter are presented.
