Webinar: How to Create Cooler Power Systems with Simulation Tools Aired April 2017
Power Components for Battery Applications
Presenter: Travis Williams, Senior Manager; Product Management and Marketing

English   Description
Many systems use batteries as the primary power source during use, or simply as a backup in case of mains failure. If demands for batteries continue to grow, engineers need an easier approach to designing battery-powered systems. In particular, the output voltage of batteries can vary significantly; power systems must deliver constant voltage to the load and act as a current source to charge the battery; and there is a continual demand for higher efficiency. In this webinar Travis Williams explains how flexible power components can be used to shorten the design cycle, simplify the power system and reduce cost, weight and size while increasing efficiency.

The webinar covers: the importance of wide input and output voltage ranges; how to design scalable power systems to meet current and future needs; how modern, flexible components can reduce costs; and techniques to maximize power density and efficiency in systems with batteries.

English   Description
Managing EMI can be one of the biggest challenges facing power designers. With problems often only revealed during compliance or pre-compliance testing, rectifying these issues can be time consuming and expensive. In this webinar, David Bourner, an experienced field applications engineer at Vicor, shares his experience of helping engineers avoid EMI issues when designing power systems. He describes how many developers overlook the simple things, resulting in costly and time-consuming remedial work to achieve EMI compliance.

The webinar covers the causes of EMI issues in power systems; the impact of the switching topology; principles of controlling conducted (CE) and radiated emissions (RE); and will leave you with a checklist to ensure you address EMI during the design process

Webinar: How to Create Cooler Power Systems with Simulation Tools Aired November 2016
How to Create Cooler Power Systems with Simulation Tools
Presenter: Mike DeGaetano, Systems Applications Engineer
001x001px_alpha.png 001x001px_alpha.png
English   Description
With requirements for power systems becoming more and more challenging, good thermal design is essential if power engineers are to meet their goals. This webinar starts by describing the information you need to gather from data sheets and app notes, and then shows how to make accurate thermal calculations by hand. It then demonstrates how online tools can take remove the need for these time consuming thermal calculations, allowing the evaluation of different components and cooling options with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Thermal design is an important part of power system development and this webinar will benefit engineers working in all applications. The webinar is designed to help with a wide range of experience, from recent graduates to power design experts.

Webinar: Maximum Load: The Wrong Specification for Pulsed Power Aired September 2016
Maximum Load: The Wrong Specification for Pulsed Power
Presenter: Dave Berry, Principal Application Engineer
001x001px_alpha.png 001x001px_alpha.png
English   Description
If you are developing power systems for intermittent or pulsed loads you are likely to be sizing the power supply based on the maximum power demanded by the load, even though it adds size, weight and cost to the system. This webinar explains why peak power is the wrong metric and introduces a different technique – power averaging. You’ll learn how this technique can be implemented in real-world pulsed load applications, significantly improving the performance of the power systems, while reducing size and cost. This is a must view webinar for anyone designing power systems for pulsed or intermittent loads.

Enabling Bi-Directional Energy Flow Using DC Power Transformers Aired May 2016
Enabling Bi-Directional Energy Flow Using DC Power Transformers
Presenter: Harry Vig, Principal Systems Application Engineer
001x001px_alpha.png 001x001px_alpha.png
English   Description
Bi-directional energy flow enables a range of techniques such as energy harvesting, dynamic energy storage and higher transmission voltages to deliver higher efficiency and better performance to a wide variety of applications. Recently introduced bi-directional DC-DC power components change everything. By acting as if they were DC power transformers, the components eliminate the need for back-to-back converters that are switched in and out, increasing efficiency, reducing size and improving power density.

Watch this webinar to learn about designing for bi-directional DC-DC power flow; implementing energy saving and harvesting techniques; using batteries as a dynamic storage element; how you can power remote loads using higher voltages; and how you can use DC power transformers to simplify power system design.
