1. A resonant converter, comprising:
a first switch on a primary side and a second switch coupled to the first switch;
a synchronization rectification switch on a secondary side configured to conduct during a conduction period in response to a switching operation of the first switch; and
a switch control circuit configured to determine an operating region of the resonant converter to be below resonance based on a result of a comparison between the conduction period and an on period of the first switch.
