What is voltage ripple and why is it important?

Published: 22 November 2022

Depending on the application voltage ripple is often a key factor when designing a system and selecting a power supply, however minimising the output voltage ripple value has advantages whether or not you are working with sensitive electronics.

High Voltage Applications

High Voltage Applications

Published: 15 November 2022

Why use high voltage?

High voltage transmission is often thought of when thinking of high voltage applications, however there are many applications that require a high voltage power source to be able to operate at all.

The primary use of high voltage outside of transmission is in the industrial, scientific, medical and imaging fields.

 

Are robots the future surgeons? What does this mean for power electronics?

Are robots the future surgeons? What does this mean for power electronics?

Published: 26 October 2022

Robotic surgery, also known as robotic-assisted surgery is becoming ever increasingly popular primarily due to its less invasive nature. The name can be misleading but the robot itself doesn’t perform the surgical procedure; the surgeon is still in control of the decision-making process but uses the robot to carry out the fine movements during the procedure.

Challenges for the test and measurement industry with the EV revolution

Published: 11 October 2022

Automobiles have become ever more reliant on electrical systems, even traditional cars have approximately 30% more electrical components than their historic counterparts. These electrical components undergo harsh operating conditions due to the mechanical and thermal stress they experience during operation.

DC/DC converters used for railway applications sometimes have potting material surrounding them, why is this?

DC/DC converters used for railway applications sometimes have potting material surrounding them, why is this?

Published: 15 September 2022

What are the benefits of using potted material?

Potted material helps to insulate and protect the electronics within the converter from shock, vibration, and extreme temperatures. This helps to ensure reliable operation of the converter, even in harsh environments.

Potted material also helps to improve the thermal performance of the converter by providing a good heat sink for the electronic components. This can help to extend the life of the converter by preventing overheating.

Power Supplies for Medical Use: Ensuring Patient and Operator Safety

Published: 24 May 2022

In any hospital or medical setting, it is essential that power supplies are reliable and safe. A power outage or malfunction can be dangerous for both patients and operators. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of power supplies for medical use, and some of the safety features that could occur if you don't choose a medical approved power supply.

What is the difference between switch mode power supply and regulated power supply?

What is the difference between switch mode power supply and regulated power supply?

Published: 8 April 2022

The main difference between a switch mode power supply and a linear power supply is that the former uses switches to control the flow of energy, while the latter uses resistors to control the voltage output. This means that switch mode power supplies are more efficient than regulated power supplies, as the resistors in the linear regulator dissipate the extra energy in the form of heat. However, switched mode power supplies generate noise due to the high-speed switching process, so it's important to choose the right type of power supply for your application.
