A canonical approach to the unification and synthesis of energy processing circuits (such as ac/dc and dc/ac convertors, voltage stabilizers, and power amplifiers) operated at high efficiency is presented. The energy conversion process is conceived as the regulation of power flow among the terminals of a basic N terminal network, composed of source and load elements, such that the voltage/current parameters of the terminals are controlled according to a given function. Such control is achieved by varying the parameters of a time-variable network proposed herein is realized by means of time-variable transformers. The basic control model is loss free (barring the internal energy losses of each of the controlled elements).
