Are you planning to design your own QR flyback? This Quasi Resonant Flyback Design Tool will help you do the job effortlessly. All you need to do is to download the tool on the lowest part of this page. Also ensure that you have Mathcad 14 on your PC to open the file. Try search online if lower versions or higher versions of Mathcad can read Mathcad 14 if you don’t have the 14 version. Below are the top-level explanations to every step on this quasi resonant flyback design tool.
1. Setting the Reflected Voltage
Setting the reflected voltage is the first step on this design tool. All the green fields are inputs while yellow fields are outputs.
2. Compute the Input Power
You need to compute the input power using known values. Green fields are inputs, provide data there while yellow fields are calculation results that you should not alter.
3. Design the Primary Inductance
In order to ensure getting the full benefit of a quasi resonant flyback converter, the primary inductance must be selected correctly. There is a derivation on how the equation derived but you will not need that anymore as this Quasi resonant flyback design tool will do that for you. All fields in green are inputs while in yellow are computation results.
4. Select the Type of Core
To get going using this QR flyback design tool, you need to select the core material in this step. Supply data on the green fields.
5. Minimum Number of Turns to the Primary
Insufficient number of turns on the primary winding will make the core saturate. This step will give you the required minimum turns. Fields in green are inputs. Do not alter fields in yellow as they are computation results.
6. Determine the Turns Ratio
This section will help you determine the primary to secondary turns ratio. Yellow field is a computation result. Do not alter it.
7. Setting the Secondary Winding Turns
Now determine what turns you need on the secondary winding. Green field is input while yellow field is computation result.
8. Dead Time
Quasi resonant flyback needs dead time to operate as expected. This step will do the calculation. Yellow field is a calculation result.
9. Determine the Duty Cycle
This step will calculate the duty cycle. Yellow field is a computation result. Don’t alter it.
10. Primary Current Derivation
In this step you will see the values of the primary currents. All fields in yellow are computation results. Do not alter them.
11. Primary Switch Current Stress
This step will give you tip about the current stress of the switch.
12. Primary Switch Power Losses
In this step, the power losses of the primary switch will be determined. Green fields are inputs while yellow fields are computation outputs. Do no alter the yellow fields.
13. Secondary Current Derivations
You are done with the primary side, its time to go to the secondary. All yellow fields are computation results. Do not alter them.
14. Output Diode Current Stress
This step will give you tip on what should be the stress level be.
15. Output Bridge Diode Power Stress
This step will give you the power dissipation of the output diode and help you select which part to use. Green fields are input while yellow fields are output.
16. Output Diode Peak Reverse Voltage
This step will tell you the expected level of the peak reverse voltage. Yellow fields are computation results.
17. Ripple Current
This step will give the ripple current level. Again, yellow field is a computation result.
18. Minimum Capacitance
This step will help to compute the minimum needed capacitance on the output. Yellow fields are computation results. Green field is input.
19. Output Capacitor Selection
Finally, the last step of this quasi resonant flyback design tool is the selection of the output capacitor to ensure a good regulation. Yellow field is computation result.
