Avoiding common ACDC design pitfalls

Design-in of AC-DC front end modules can be complicated. This session will provide a straightforward approach for success, covering such topics as: source impedance considerations, inrush current, filter resonance and damping, PFC, faults, fusing, system stability and safety.

This webinar focuses on:

  • AC-DC front-end considerations: Understanding the System
  • Inrush current considerations
  • Is power factor correction required?
  • Passive and Active PFC

Who should watch?

Engineers who want to discover new techniques using real-world applications to develop system architecture and select power components to fulfill conversion needs.
