Book description
Switching Power Supplies A  Z is the most comprehensive study available of the theoretical and practical aspects of controlling and measuring Electromagnetic Interference in switching power supplies, including input filter instability considerations.
The new edition is thoroughly revised with six completely new chapters, while the existing EMI chapters are expanded to include many more stepbystep numerical examples and key derivations and EMI mitigation techniques. New topics cover the length and breadth of modern switching power conversion techniques, lucidly explained in simple but thorough terms, now with uniquely detailed "wallreference charts" providing easy access to even complex topics.
 Stepbystep and iterative approach for calculating highfrequency losses in forward converter transformers, including Proximity losses based on Dowell's equations
 Thorough, yet uniquely simple design flowchart for building DCDC converters and their magnetic components under typical wideinput supply conditions
 Stepbystep, solved examples for stabilizing control loops of all three major topologies, using either transconductance or conventional operational amplifiers, and either currentmode or voltagemode control
