    hello everyone,

    I have some voltage spikes on the primary side of my transformer and i wanna get rid of that..It is driven using a full bridge converter..

    Should I use a TVS diode or a snubber circuit??
    Which is better and why??

    While using an ohmic load , the waveform looks perfect...

    Simple to put together a R/C snubber to test, ensure the use of an AC rated cap.

    But the transformer is not driven at a single fixed switching frequency..It is varied from 50 KHz to 25 KHZ ...

    Even for such a wide frequency range , is it possible to use a snubber circuit??

    If yes, then please explain me , HOW??
