Primary current, Center Tap Current Doubler Topology - Myth and Reality

Primary current, center tap This is a PSpice simulation waveform, for the current in the primary of the power transformer, for a power supply using the Center Tap topology.

There are several topologies available for the DC/DC output stage of a high power AC/DC power supply. Current Doubler and Center Tap high frequency power transformers are the major options for the DC/DC converter section.
