Power electronics impacts our lives in so many ways - from new power circuits that extend battery life to voltage regulators that help manage and distribute energy more efficiently from the grid to the consumer. This four-part Power 101 fundamentals course covers several topics that a design engineer needs to understand when it comes to power management design.
One of the key systems in a solar energy harvester is a solar inverter. A solar inverter, or any kind of inverter for that matter, will take a Direct Current voltage input and convert it to an Alternating Current output that can be used to power standard appliances and electronics in a home or business. While just about any high power DC source can be used, the largest sector of inverter growth is in renewables, particularly solar applications. Watch this series to help you mitigate multiple solar inverter design challenges.
We live in a world where design engineers are on a seemingly constant pursuit for higher efficiency. Everyone wants to do more with less power. Higher system efficiency is a team effort that includes (but is not limited to) better-performing gate drivers, controllers and new wide-bandgap technologies. In this multi-part video series, we will focus on the gate drivers and how choosing the right driver can help your whole system design. You will learn about important gate driver specs, why they’re important, and how they can influence the systems around them.
Power Switching Device Cannot Drive Themselves - Mastering the Art of High Voltage Gate Driver Design in UPS, Telecom, and Servers
We live in a world where designers are constantly pursuing higher efficiencies and higher power densities. Our customers want more power out with less power loss, while achieving smaller solution sizes! They strive to reduce switching losses while maintaining signal integrity. The need for higher efficiency and power density is a trend seen across isolated and non-isolated power systems in Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), Telecom Rectifiers, and Server PSUs.
The Getting Started with Current Sense Amplifiers series helps engineers learn how to maximize the performance achieved when measuring current with a current sense amplifier (also called a current shunt monitor).
This is a series of short videos, each addressing a different topic. While intended as a series to be viewed in order, each session is stand-alone and can be viewed without the need to watch it all if there is a specific topic you are interested in learning more about.
We are all well aware that the demand for Electric Vehicles (EV) is increasing rapidly. This eight-part training session begins with a description of a typical EV system in part 1. Part 2 is a brief description of how both Lead Acid and Lithium Ion batteries are charged. Part 3 focuses on the types of power factor and harmonic currents. 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.
