Power seminars for engineering efficiency begin world tour in Europe
The theme for the one-day seminars is “Engineering Energy Efficiency”. Presentations combine new, advanced power supply concepts, tutorial review of basic design principles, and “hands-on” real-world application examples.
 
Topics range covered include advanced or emerging power technologies (critical design issues of LLC resonant converters, current shaping strategies for buck PFC); design issues in key applications (low-voltage DC/DC converters, high power HB-LEDs) and design examples (rapid-iteration flyback design)
 
Attendees will receive theoretical and practical discussions on each topic; pros and cons of different solutions to improve energy efficiency and system performance. Each presentations is accompanied by a technical paper for reference. 
 
Technical sessions include:
 
-          The LLC Resonant Converter: Design Issues and Solutions – highlighting the critical design issues of the LLC resonant converter including synchronous rectification and discussing potential solutions to solve them.
-          Driving HB-LEDs in High-Power Industrial Fixtures – addressing some of the specific challenges designers face when considering power supply design solutions for HB-LED lighting applications.
-          Current Shaping Strategies for Buck Power Factor Correction (PFC) – discussing two possible control techniques for a buck PFC converter, where the input current is indirectly shaped by shaping the inductor current.
-          Improve Flyback Design Performance with a Rapid Iteration Approach – highlighting capable design software that enables an engineer to optimize a circuit by comparing the performance of many different design alternatives in a short time.
-          Evolution in Packaging for Optimum Efficiency and Size in Low Voltage DC-DC Applications – focusing on the advantages of co-packaging two power MOSFET die along with a gate driver IC die to form a low voltage, high current multi-chip module (MCM) synchronous buck power stage.
