White Paper Explains How to Avoid Hidden Costs when Developing Power Systems

March 8, 2018

It’s not uncommon for power design projects to encounter cost and time overruns during the development phase. In many cases, such as inevitable changes in specifications during the design cycle, these additional costs are unavoidable, but difficult to forecast. Frequently we hear engineers referring to them as the “hidden costs of power design”.

Hidden Costs of Power Design White PaperSome approaches to power design are less flexible than others, making it harder to accommodate these changes, increasing the hidden costs that can be encountered. Using modern power components, however, can eliminate many of the challenges, making it more likely the project will be delivered on time and on budget.

The white paper discusses:

  • Why off-the-shelf power supplies can increase, rather than reduce project risk
  • How discrete designs extend timescales and can increase the likelihood of redesigns
  • How a methodology based on power components can help eliminate these hidden costs
