In this paper, a detailed time domain analysis and accurate time domain model of L-Complementaryself-oscillating class D inverter with output voltage clamping in the steady state is proposed. The proposed model is very useful for predicting the converter voltages and currents as well as for optimizing the circuit design. Experimental results for 42watt spiral CFL electronic ballast are presented to validate the analysis.
