In this paper for full─bridge serial resonant converter, exact general equations for dependencies of phase angle, the maximum voltage of the capacitor and the maximum value of the output current are derived. Mathematical analysis of the this dependence on the resonant circuit dumping frequency when it is excited with pulse voltage with a different frequency than the resonant one is made. This dependences derived in wide a band around the resonant frequency.
