Output Line Ripple on Power Factor Corrected AC-DC Power Supply Outputs

AC-DC power systems inevitably generate ripple on the output. I’ve written this series of blog posts to help developers gain a greater understanding of the causes of output ripple through real-world examples and circuit models. The posts will be of interest to anyone who designs systems that use AC power, whether single or three-phase. There are eight posts in total: Line Ripple on the Output Voltage Bus A Simple Average Model for Output Current Ripple Effect of Load Type on Bulk Capacitor Ripple How Much Does The Load Affect the Output Ripple? Three Phase...

Learn More About the New 380 V BCM From Vicor

The recently-released 380 VDC Bus Converter Module (BCM), the first product utilizing our new ChiP platform, has attracted a lot of attention. Efficiency of up to 98%, 1/8 step-down ratio and breakthrough power density (four times better than competing solutions) makes it an important device to enable HVDC power system architectures. In this video, Gary Gill, Director of Vicor’s VI Chip, explains the features of the ChiP BCM that allow engineers to develop power architectures that meet the efficiency, density and performance goals of the most demanding applications.       More information: 380...
