The isolated DC/DC converter is becoming increasingly important in high-speed switching devices. The electrical isolation provides certain safety aspects. There is a need for the reduction of the electromagnetic interference (EMI) produced by these converters. Earlier studies have shown the reduction of differential mode (DM) noise by interleaving. Next to DM reduction, it is possible to cancel common mode (CM) noise, which exists due to parasitic capacitance, for instance at the switching node. In this study, certain limitations of in the cancellation technique are demonstrated and discussed.
