Switching Power Supply Component Selection

This 7-part series discusses tips and best practices for selecting the appropriate components for your switching power supply.

Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) vs. Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) for High Power DC/DC Conversion

The Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) has always been considered the best design for high power DC/DC conversion. However, a newer technology called Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) has recently been used and accepted for high power DC/DC conversion. In this 3 part series, we will go in-depth in discussing the pros and cons of both the PSFB and FB-LLC. We will then compare the basic problems between the PSFB and FB-LLC and give ideas on how to choose between the two given a certain application. Lastly, we will review some Reference Designs.

Survey of Resonant Converter Topologies

In recent years, resonant converters have become more popular and are widely applied in various applications like servers, communications and consumer electronics. The resonant converter can easily achieve high efficiency and allow high frequency operation with its intrinsic wide softswitching ranges. However, resonant converters rely on frequency modulation (FM) to achieve voltage or current regulation instead of traditional pulse width modulation (PWM).

Control and Design Challenges for Synchronous Rectifiers

With the development of telecommunication and mobile technologies, smart phones, tablets and notebook computers became essential parts of everyday life. Because of this, we require more powerful processors, which requires increased batter size and higher levels of AC/DC chargers, while the size is expected to remain the same or grow smaller.

Comparison of GaN and Silicon FET-Based Active Clamp Flyback Converters

This course demonstrates how an active clamp flyback converter achieves zero voltage switching (ZVS) and recycles the leakage energy of the transformer to improve efficiency in higher frequency operation. Although it is well known that switch node capacitance determines the circulating energy for ZVS, the capacitance-nonlinearity impact from each of the two primary-side switches and from the secondary synchronous rectifier has not been well understood.

Introduce high power DC/DC conversion design: comparison of PSFB and FB-LLC

The “conventional wisdom” is that the Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) topology is the best choice for high power DC/DC converter applications. However, the “conventional wisdom” has been challenged by the users who are choosing the Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) topology for applications where we would normally suggest the PSFB topology. The speaker provides a clear comparison between the two typologies and tries to indicate which is best in a given application.

Designing a High-Power Bidirectional AC/DC Power Supply Using SiC FETs

High-power bidirectional AC/DC power supplies are widely used as uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), energy storage systems (ESS) and onboard chargers (OBC) with with vehicle-to-grid (V2G) capability. Compared to the traditional approach ¡V using one unidirectional rectifier and one unidirectional inverter to achieve a bidirectional energy flow ¡V a bidirectional rectifier can provide advantages such as smaller size, higher power density and higher efficiency. This paper reviews topologies, design considerations and design challenges of high power bidirectional AC/DC power supplies.

Common Mistakes in Flyback Power Supplies and How to Fix Them

When you run into a problem in your power-supply design, the odds are that someone else has already solved the same problem on another design. Wouldn’t it be great if you could learn from their mistakes? This five part video series focuses on some of the most common mistakes in the design and troubleshooting of low-power AC/DC power supplies, specifically focusing on the flyback topology.

Practical EMI Considerations for Low-Power AC/DC Supplies

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is an essential part of every power-supply design, but too often gets relegated to the end of the design flow, at which point its resolution can be time-consuming, costly and inefficient. This seven part video series will help dispel fears about EMI, and show how to find and fix the issues.

Power Factor Correction Circuit Basics

Power Factor Correction (PFC) Circuit Basics

From laptop adapters to power tools, any end equipment powered from the AC grid represents a complex load where the input current is not always in phase with the instantaneous line voltage. As such, the end equipment consumes both real power as well as reactive power from the grid. The ratio between real, usable power (measured in watts) and the total real-plus-reactive power is known as the power factor.

Part 4 discusses power factor correction and the typical boost PFC stage. Part 5 concentrates on the Phase Shifted Full Bridge topology, including the reasons why it is used and a detailed description of how it operates.

Optimizing DC/DC Converters for EMI in Automotive systems

Optimizing DC/DC Converters for EMI in Automotive Systems

EMI (electromagnetic interference) mitigation is a critical step in the design process in most electronic systems, and especially so in the automotive world. In many cases, automotive OEM emissions requirements are even more stringent than both national and international standards bodies like the FCC. Unfortunately, by their nature, switching regulators are sources of EMI; but, in order to keep power supply designs small and efficient, switchers are a critical component. So how can you reap the benefits of a switching regulator while still meeting challenging EMI requirements?
