How to solve the problem of power module selection

Author: ZYG Technology Ltd release time: 2022-12-20 CTR: 399

It is not easy to select a power module. There are many difficulties to consider. How much do you know?

Magnetic beads, capacitors, diodes, resistors… all have similar inside stories, but people don’t pay much attention to them. There are various topologies of power modules, such as flyback, forward, push-pull, half-bridge, and full-bridge. Due to their different basic principles, each of them is mainly manifested in the advantages at the level of certain characteristic indicators.

The flyback power supply does not have a time period for charging and discharging the battery during the power switch period. That is because there is no time characteristic of the response characteristic, and the grain baud cannot be guaranteed to be very good, although it may not help much according to the energy storage capacitor , but the rationale is just a flaw.

Leakage inductance is also a big problem, but its advantages are simple power supply circuit, low cost, light weight, no need to add magnetic calibration windings, and a wider operating voltage range for typing. Because of this, its share of the total power supply sales market is about 7%.



The output voltage of the positive power supply has good transient operation characteristics and strong load capacity, but its disadvantages are also obvious. The large energy storage technology is used to filter the inductor and the freewheeling diode, which is large in size, and the back electromotive force of the primary coil of the transformer is high. .

The push-pull power supply has high transient response time, good working voltage and frequency characteristics. It is the most utilized power transformer of all topologies. No flux leakage, simple optocoupler circuit.

If the two forward converters are not completely symmetrical or balanced, the bias magnetism accumulated after many cycles will cause the magnetic core to enter a saturated state, resulting in excessive excitation current of the high-frequency transformer, and even damage the power switch tube.

The accumulative chainless power supply transformer has a large power and high working efficiency, the withstand voltage test value of the power switch tube is relatively low, and the primary coil of the transformer only needs to be wound once. The disadvantage is that the efficiency is low, there is a semiconductor area, and the consumption is large.

The above problems are all caused by the inherent advantages and disadvantages of its topology. Although people can use the power module as the black box of the aircraft, this is also a point that needs to be paid attention to when choosing a power supply.

    AC-DC Converter Manufacturers:everything you should know

    If you're in the market for an AC-DC converter, there are a few top manufacturers you should know about. In this blog post, we'll take a look at the top five AC-DC converter manufacturers and what makes them stand out from the competition. 1. What is an AC-DC converter? An AC-DC converter is a device used to convert alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC). This is important because most devices use DC power, and AC must be converted to DC for these devices to function. There are many different types of AC-DC converters, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the most common types of AC-DC converters are power supplies, transformers, and rectifiers. 2. What are...

    How to choose your AC to DC converter for a car

    What is a AC to DC converter for a car? DC to AC converters for cars are devices that allow a car to run on AC power. They are used to convert the DC power that is provided by the car's battery into AC power that can be used to operate the car's electrical components. How does a AC to DC converter work? A DC to AC converter, also known as an inverter, is a device that converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). The inverter contains a number of switches that can be turned on and off very quickly, creating an alternating current output. The frequency of the output AC is based on the number of switches that...

    How to choose DC-DC Converter factory, how to choose high quality DC-DC Converter

    What is a DC-DC converter? A DC-DC converter, also known as a DC-DC converter or DC transformer, is a circuit or electromechanical device that converts electrical energy. It can convert direct current (DC) power to DC power (or approximate DC) of different voltages. Its power ranges from very low (small batteries) to very high (high voltage power transfer). The output voltage of some DC-DC converters has the same reference point as the input voltage, while the output voltage of some DC-DC converters is isolated from the input voltage.     DC-DC Converter Inductor Selection The process of selecting an inductor for a DC-DC converter depends on many parameters. Depending on the power levels involved, these inductors can be quite large...

    If you want to design a power module, what aspects need to be considered?

    If you are a switching power supply technical engineer, there is no need to look at the introduction of power modules. When you are still a novice, or learn SCM design, it is best to look down word by word.   How to choose the right power module Principle and technology of circuit design Only from a professional point of view can the principle of circuit and circuit quality be distinguished. At present, the power module can be divided into two types: bare plate and filled seal. The bare board can be divided into two types in an intuitive way, such as reasonable, orderly, generous, orderly layout of electronic components, bright welding spot and straight. However, the packing and sealing...
