Current transfer ratio is comparable to BJT’s HFE or beta (β). This is the ratio of the optocoupler’s collector current to the forward current. Current transfer ratio is popular by its abbreviation CTR. CTR is simply the measure of the optocoupler’s transfer efficiency. If we recall the basics, optocoupler is a semiconductor device with a light source and a detector.
One of the usual applications of optocoupler is to provide isolation between two ground reference. That is why it is often seen in power supply feedback circuit. How to analyze optocoupler in feedback system is to discussed in this article. Keep on reading below. How to analyze optocoupler in feedback system is not as difficult as you think. However, the lackContinue reading
