A charge equalizer system is suggested for use in the future battery-packs employed in plug-in vehicles or house used in UPS-based supply systems deriving energy for supplementing the grid-connected main supply. Such applications are becoming common in Distributed Generation on spot from sources of solar (or wind), especially when grid connected power-supply is interrupted for some reason. The charge equalizer circuit is using resonant circuit, being operated by the switching frequency showing results the effect of when compared to the resonant frequency. The inrush current raises in the switching components of the resonant circuit due to inductor components. This inrush current may damage the switching component and increase the total system cost. In this work, flyback snubber circuit consisting of diode and capacitor has been used for reducing inrush high spike current. In addition, Zero current switching is achieved in this system for reducing the circuit losses.
