We will start by providing an understanding of Switched Mode Power Supplies, with a focus on understanding the basics of both AC-DC, and DC-DC converters. The building blocks of the converters will be explained. Attendees will leave with an intuitive understanding of how the circuits work.
The seminar also covers the measurements of interest for designers of switch-mode power conversion circuits and devices. We will review the acquisition of voltage and current, their relationship in switch-mode power conversion circuits, and the analysis of power device switching losses, conduction losses, safe operating area, and dynamic on-resistance.
Applications and Analysis Covered:
- Switching Device Transitional Losses
- Device Saturation Voltage, Conduction Loss, and Dynamic-On Resistance
- Device Safe Operating Area (SOA)
- Improving probe and scope accuracies
- Differential Probe Criteria for Power Circuits including CMRR
- Upper and Lower Gate Drive Measurements
- Control Loop Response Analysis
- DV/DT Measurements
- Power Quality including Apparent Power, Real Power, and Power Factor
- Line Current Harmonics, Conducted Emissions
- Review of Methods for Making Differential Voltage Measurements in Power Design Applications
- Power Rail Integrity Analysis, Ripple, Noise, and Droop Analysis
Who Should Attend:
This seminar is especially targeted toward design engineers, evaluation engineers and engineering managers involved in switch-mode power circuit design, design verification and power device characterization. Power supply, motor drive, (adjustable speed drives) and high efficiency lighting circuit designers and evaluators.
Cost: FREE, registration is required to hold your seat.
