The Yeaman topology takes advantage of the isolation in a series of DC-DC converters to put the outputs in a series stack. One converter is typically a high efficiency fixed ratio bus converter

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...

This is the eight in a series of blog posts by Harry Vig, Principal Applications Engineer at Vicor.
