Modern Power Conversion Design Techniques

June 24, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

The Educational Division of e/j Bloom Associates Inc. (San Rafael, CA) will offer presentations of a new three-segment Modern Power Conversion Design Techniques course in 2003 in the US and the UK. Dates and locations planned for the 2003 course presentations are August 4-8, 2003, in Las Vegas, NV (all three segments); and September 30 through October 2, 2003, in Portsmouth, England, UK (segments 1 and 2 only).

The first segment, one day in length, will deal with the practical design and development issues of state-of-the-art power converter circuits, including introductory sections on converter circuit models for stability control and on-design approaches for high-frequency transformers and power inductors. The second segment of the new course, two days in length, will concentrate on three important aspects of high-frequency converter design – EMI control and prevention, modern regulation control methods, and how to minimize parasitic losses in high-frequency magnetics.

The third and final course segment, also two days in length, will cover the basic design and analysis principles of power magnetic components for modern power converter circuits and systems.
