Overview

The World's #1 Guide to Power Supply Design Now Updated!

Recognized worldwide as the definitive guide to power supply design for over 25 years, Switching Power Supply Design has been updated to cover the latest innovations in technology, materials, and components. This Third Edition presents the basic principles of the most commonly used topologies, providing you with the essential information required to design cutting-edge power supplies. Using a tutorial, how-and-why approach, this expert resource is filled with design examples, equations, and charts. The Third Edition of Switching Power Supply Design features:

  • Designs for many of the most useful switching power supply topologies
  • The core principles required to solve day-to-day design problems
  • A strong focus on the essential basics of transformer and magnetics design
  • New to this edition: a full chapter on choke design and optimum drive conditions for modern fast IGBTs

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This definitive resource on designing a switching power supply uses a tutorial-style approach to explain basic principles and the reasons for various effects. The volume is divided into four main sections: topologies; magnetics and circuits designs; typical switching power supply waveforms; and newer applications. Magnetics design is emphasized, as the majority of power supply designers are primarily circuits-oriented. New chapters in this edition cover such new topics in the field as power factor correction, high-frequency ballasts for fluorescent lamps, and low-input voltage supplies for laptop computers.

Booknews
A guide to recent developments in the technology of power supply design, focusing on the current reliance on higher switching frequencies, which are possible because of power MOSFET transistors, newer topologies, and integrated-circuit pulse-width-modulating (PWM) chips. Emphasizes both circuit design and transformer design, with discussions of the magnetic design aspects; and reports on the merits and drawbacks, the usages and problem areas of the key topologies used in modern switching power supplies.

Meet the Author

Abraham Pressman was a nationally known power supply consultant

whose background ranged from army radar officer to four decades as

an analog-digital design engineer.

Keith Billings is a practicing engineer with more

than 40 years’ experience in the design of switching power equipment.

Taylor MoreyTaylor Morey, currently a professor of Electronics at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, is co-author of an electronics devices textbook, and has taught courses at Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo. He collaborates with Keith Billings as an independent power supply engineer and consultant, and previously worked in switchmode power supply development at Varian Canada in Georgetown, and Hammond Manufacturing and GFC Power in Guelph, where he first met Keith in 1988. During a 5-year sojourn to Mexico, he became fluent in Spanish and taught electronics engineering courses at the Universidad Católica de La Paz, and English as a second language at CIBNOR biological research institution of La Paz, where he also worked as an editor of graduate biology students’ articles for publication in refereed scientific journals. Earlier in his career he worked for IBM Canada on mainframe computers, and at Global TV’s studios in Toronto.
