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.
This video series covers:
- Automotive Transient standards and TI solutions
- Purpose and goals of standards
- Questions to ask in product development
- How to find right TI solutions and support
- How to identify opportunities and to provide alternative solutions
In this training series you will learn more about the TPS23861 PSE controller in combination with the MSP430 reference code for power port management.
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?
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.
Learn about opportunities for low voltage motors in major appliances, small appliances and power tools. Understand power stage architectures, topologies and control methods for low voltage brushed DC, stepper and brushless DC motors as well as the system design aspects, challenges and solutions.
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.
Certain end-equipment, like communications, server, industrial, and personal electronics have design challenges solved by the DC/DC converter’s control-mode. This session will compare and contrast 3 different devices using 3 different control modes under the same design criteria to see how each control mode solves particular size, efficiency, external component, ripple and transient response design challenges.
