Webinar Rebroadcast: “Designing High Performance AC-DC Power Systems Using a Power Component Approach” now available in French and Russian

October 15, 2013
By

This popular webinar, which walks through an innovative three-step process to design a multi-kW, AC-DC power system with a dozen output rails in just half an hour, is now available on-demand in both French and Russian. The three step process – identify, architect and implement – has been used by many engineers to quickly and efficiently design complex power systems. In the identify stage, the parameters of the output rails are determined and ranked in terms of their requirements. Next the system is architected, by building a block diagram with appropriate solutions for each...

How Adaptive Cell Topology Benefits AC Applications

June 11, 2013
By

With the wide variation in AC line voltages around the world, universal power supplies are typically designed to accept 85VRMS to 264VRMS inputs. This range has imposed significant design trade-offs on the power factor corrected AC rectification typically used in front end converters. The Vicor PFM isolated AC-DC converter with PFC, and the AC Front End Module both have Adaptive Cell™ topology at their heart, providing a breakthrough in AC front end power factor correction that addresses these trade-offs to provide a consistently efficient solution. It does so by introducing innovation at three different...
