Flyback Transformer Modelling

source: Kocaeli university Kocaeli Turkey, EPCI e-Symposium Abstract: Providing the required load power using Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS), leads to smaller and more efficient converters. Flyback converter is one of the most famous topologies in use. Flyback converter is equivalent to buck-boost converter with the inductor split to form a transformer. The operating principle […]

Supercapacitor Degradation and Reliability

source: Brno University of Technology CEITEC, EPCI e-Symposium Abstract: Degradation of supercapacitor (SC) is analyzed by accelerated aging test. Evolution of SC parameters is determined before the aging test, and during up to 8 x 105 cycles of both 75% and 100% energy cycling. Capacitance fading, equivalent series resistance (ESR) increase, and leakage current trend […]
