This work proposes a new control scheme for multi-output forward converters with wide load variations (from no-load to full-load). New control scheme provides independent and precise voltage regulation independent of operation mode (CCM/DCM) of any output(s). Easy-to-implement control scheme prevents design complexity for forward converters with large number of outputs. A two-output 42V to 5V-10A and 12V-4A forward converter prototype has been build to show the validity of the proposed concept. Both simulation and experimental results verified the proposed method.
