hi,

Is it true that the reverse recovery event in a Continuous mode flyback is far worse than in a continuous mode 1 transistor forward converter?

-this being because in a 1 transistor forward converter there is an inductor between the secondary series diode and the output capacitor, but in the flyback, the secondary diode connects directly to the output cap, from which it draws a large current spike at diode turn off
