As other reviewers stated, the late Mr. So you need to read and understand the text plus an Engineering background is a must so you can derive your own equations that fit your own particular circuit topology. This book is an Engineer's Dream Come True when it comes to understanding and designing power supplies. Where I felt additional explanations were justified, I have inserted a Tip or Note. For someone who just wants to design a flyback converter, for example, its equivalences with the buck-boost converter may not be worth much, but this book is certainly not for the academically inclined.
Description: Fully updated to reflect the latest technologies and materials. Keith Billings book also very good. Abraham had been active in the electronics industry for nearly six decades. Feedback Loop Stabilization Chapter 13. Don't get this book if you are expecting to apply Maxwell's equations to transformers or get into deep theory. Although the book is written for the practicing engineer and avoids even basic calculus like the plague, I am finding Mr.
This particular edition is in a Hardcover format. Not reallly heavy on the math just good solid descripiton of how things work. After a topology is selected, the next major decisions are to select an operating frequency and transformer core size which yields the specified maximum output power for the smallest-size transformer. Veuillez effectuer une mise à jour de votre navigateur pour continuer sur Indigo. I was privileged to know Abraham and collaborate with him on various projects in his later years. With the insight provided by Abe, I moved forward with great strides.
One word of warning: when using the formulas keep in mind that they are for one particular topology. Some have a lower parts count than do others for the same output power or offer a better tradeoff in parts count versus reliability. It's true the books is a little outdated, but it still holds its value. Using the equation shown below, calculate the WaAc product and then use the to select the appropriate core. Power Factor and Power Factor Connection Chapter 16. This has altered many of the limitations that Abe mentions, so this was a good time to make adjustments and add some new work. Low-Input-Voltage Regulators for Laptop Computers and Portable Electronics Appendix Bibliography Index McGraw-Hill authors represent the leading experts in their fields and are dedicated to improving the lives, careers, and interests of readers worldwide McGraw-Hill authors represent the leading experts in their fields and are dedicated to improving the lives, careers, and interests of readers worldwide Taylor Morey, currently a professor of Electronics at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, is co-author of an electronics devices textbook, and has taught courses at Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo.
No other book I have read comes close to covering the basics and providing a very, very clear understanding of how things work. His book provides a solid underpinning of the fundamentals, explaining not only how but also why we do things. During a 5-year sojourn to Mexico, he became fluent in Spanish and taught electronics engineering courses at the Universidad Cati? This bestselling tutorial shows you how to designstate-of-the-art power supply systems for any type ofcomputer or electronic device. Electronic Ballasts: High-Frequency Power Regulators for Fluorescent Lamps Chapter 17. In this third edition of the book, Mr. Cliquez sur Exécuter ou sur Enregistrer, puis suivez les directives pour effectuer la mise à jour.
. The estimated amount of time this product will be on the market is based on a number of factors, including faculty input to instructional design and the prior revision cycle and updates to academic research-which typically results in a revision cycle ranging from every two to four years for this product. Billings' approach of just throwing formulas at the reader instead of deriving them from basic electromagnetic theory rather perplexing. These relations can be used in equation form to select a transformer core and operating frequency. Had he dedicated a couple pages to this simple subject, the reader would have been able to stand on his own feet instead of taking all those sometimes erroneous formulas at face value. The state-space averaging models, canonical models, the bilateral inversion techniques, or duality principles so valuable to modern experts in this field were not for Abraham. Where new technology and recent improvements in components have changed some of the limitations mentioned in the second edition, you will find my adjusting notes under the heading After Pressman.
Alhtough it does not have all of the latest technologies it is the best book written on the basics of power supplies. Abe was very frail by then, and I was so pleased that he lived to see his legacy living on, albeit in a very different form. Everytime I re-read the book I strengthen my background and learn something new. I have all the respect in the world for the late Pressman. In this way, the original structure of the second edition remains unchanged, and because the index and cross references still apply, the reader will find favorite sections in the same places. I have hundreds of engineering books written across many decades.
In most of the text I've read, these sub-systems are mentioned only during explaining a topology. This book gives a wonderful medium to high level treatment on the subject, from design of the transformer to design of the circuit, often going so far as to give steps for designing a particular circuit. Unfortunately, the page numbers did change, as there was no way to avoid this. Further, some topologies have inherent design drawbacks which require additional circuitry or more complex circuitry, not completely analyzable in various worst-case situations. Flyback Converter Topologies Chapter 5. Recognized worldwide as the definitive guide to power supply design for over 25 years, Switching Power Supply Design has been upda Publisher's Note: Products purchased from Third Party sellers are not guaranteed by the publisher for quality, authenticity, or access to any online entitlements included with the product. Though they need not necessarily be followed in order, they give an excellent check list of what needs doing.
He reveals power supplies like no other. There are numerous typographic errors in formulas, arithmetic errors in calculations, references to wrong figures, different values entered for the same parameter, and so on. It was a new technology, and the few companies and engineers specializing in this area were not about to tell the rest of world what they were doing. Core Selection by Power Handling Capacity The characterizes the power handling capacity of each ferrite core based upon the frequency of operation, the circuit topology, the flux level selected, and the amount of power required by the circuit. Current-Mode and Current-Fed Topologies Chapter 6.
That said, this book has been worth its weight in gold for the project that I find myself on currently. When, in 2000, Abe found he was no longer able to continue with his training course, I was proud that he asked me to take over his course notes with a view to continuing his presentation. Using a tutorial, how-and-why approach, this expert resource is filled with design examples, equations, and charts. For this third edition, McGraw-Hill converted the manuscript to digital files for ease of editing. There are also repetitions of the same discussion, just a few pages apart from each other, as if to hammer it down. On top of that, he gave each sub-system I would call it of the switching power supply its own chapter, like Transistors and control circuits.
