Future Electronics – Flyback Transformer Design: Practical Guidance on Minimizing Losses

FTMFeb2018-TV-FutureElectronicsFlyback-tile-200x200

By: David Woodcock, BSc, MEng, MBA, System Design Center Manager, Future Electronics There are many possible topologies for a Switch-Mode Power Supply (SMPS), but the most popular for circuits supplying a load less than 150W is the flyback converter. Some estimates go so far as to suggest that up to 75% of offline power supplies […]
