A three-level DC-to-DC converter is provided having zero-voltage and zero-current switching (ZVZCS). A flying capacitor is provided on the primary side of the converter to achieve zero voltage switching (ZVS). In addition, during freewheeling (i.e., when no power is being transferred from the primary side to the secondary side), an auxiliary power source is provided to eliminate the circulating energy and to achieve zero current switching (ZCS) for the commutation switches.
