Practical Design of Power Supplies / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
Practical Design of Power Supplies"In a rare and very welcome departure from the power industry'sstandard technical treatise, Ron Lenk's book . . . offers a clear,pragmatic view of the practical real-world aspects governing powersupply design . . . . Engineers at all levels . . . can expect togain an enlightened perspective normally gained only after years ofdesign experience."Frank Wahl, Managing Editor, PCIM Magazine"This is a real hands-on reference in which Ron has done anoutstanding job of combining just enough theory for understanding,together with several lifetimes' worth of experience. I amconfident that it is destined to become dog-eared and worn on thetop of every power supply designer's desk."Bob Mammano, Vice President Advanced Technology, UnitrodePractical Design of Power Supplies details key techniques andoffers advice to engineers and technicians who want to design andbuild power supplies that work the first time they are turned on.Leading authority Ron Lenk presents current, experiment-basedinformation that can save hours of research and design time.Containing many handy "Practice Notes" and real-world examples,Practical Design of Power Supplies is an excellent how-to referenceto keep by your side throughout the design, lab, and productionphases. The topics covered will be immediately useful in everydaycircuits and systems work:* Common terms and instrumentation* How to design successful magnetics* How to compensate the feedback loop to obtain stableoperation* Practical EMI* Topology selection* Worst-case analysisPractical Design of Power Supplies will be especially useful todesigners who need to understand and implement the concepts behindloop compensation and magnetics design.
