Reference book on DC-DC converters released

28-05-2024 | Wurth | Power

Würth Elektronik has launched another reference book for power supply engineers: 'DC/DC Converter Handbook – SMPS topologies from an EMC point of view'. It is now available in printed form and will also be available as an e-book in May.

The book by the authors – Andreas Nadler, Steffen Schulze, Raphael Specht and Markus Thoss – offers a compact overview of the most important DC-DC converter topologies: buck and boost converters, as well as SEPIC and flyback converters. It contains examples of circuit layouts and tips for selecting storage chokes, capacitors, and filter components and specifying and selecting the suitable components for each topology. EMC interference sources are clearly itemised. Interference spectra are calculated for the four most common switching regulator topologies, and the resulting filter design is presented in detail.

This handbook offers straightforward assistance for DC-DC converter designs together with its REDEXPERT online simulation platform. Estimating conducted interference during the design phase enables the prevention of bad surprises in the EMC lab.
