Transforming 400V into power for SELV systems

Power is best distributed at high voltages-- by power transmission wires but also from a charging station into an electric vehicle. It’s necessary to transform that high voltage power into useful power at a safe, lower voltage with a DC-DC converter. The Vicor BCM is an ideal converter to transform the high voltage into the safe low voltage, in a small form factor and lightweight package, for static or dynamic power needs. Ian Mazsa, Director of Product Marketing and Business Development sits down with Amelia Dalton, Host of Chalk Talk (EE Journal) to discuss the best practices and benefits of using high voltage power.
