Flyback Converter Circuit

How Flyback Converter Works – Operation and Principle

A flyback converter is composed of a flyback transformer, switch, rectifier and filter and the control mechanism to drive the switch and provide regulation. It is a low part count switching converter and relatively easy to make or design. A flyback converter is an isolated switching converter that can be a step down or step up configuration. Most cell phone, tablets and laptop chargers are made from flyback converter. Following topics will discuss how flyback converter works.

Power MOSFET Design Equations

here are only few power MOSFET design equations to take note when doing design involving this electronic part. You may try deriving these equations if you want a better understanding on how these formulated. These are also given in application notes and some technical blogs but maybe in different form but will result to the same calculation results.

Inverter Aircon Savings

Inverter Aircon Can and Cannot Save Money

Advertisers said that end user can save up to 50% of their electric bill compared to the conventional or non-inverter aircon. Is this true? Well, let us talk about it, so keep reading. I actually say that inverter aircon can and cannot save money. Inverter aircon is a new technology; actually, not anymore very new as of this writing but there is no other technology so far newer than this in air conditioning world.
