I would like to ask about voltage fed and current fed inverters.

I know that a voltage fed converter uses a capacitor as the storage device while a current fed converter uses an inductor.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of these two topologies and why should someone choose the one over the other?

  • \$\begingroup\$ May wish to edit your title. Inverters or converters? Not all converters are inverters. \$\endgroup\$ – K H Jan 7 '19 at 0:50
  • \$\begingroup\$ @KH Thanks for your input. I am studying inverters so I edited the question, \$\endgroup\$ – Yiannis S. Jan 7 '19 at 4:36
  • \$\begingroup\$ Inductors can provide galvanic isolation and capacitors don't use magnetics would be two reasons. \$\endgroup\$ – K H Jan 7 '19 at 5:52
