In this article both the general linear regenerative turn-on and turn-off snubbers are analysed and optimized independently from one another, in terms of minimum energy losses. The dissipative snubber - which was up to now the only optimized snubber - now becomes merely a special case of this general regenerative snubber. Equations describing the most important parameters are presented in tables, while some energy versus snubber size graphs are also shown.
