Ridley offers Expanded Power Supply Design Workshops

April 08, 2015 by Jeff Shepard

Learn first-hand from Dr. Ray Ridley, one of the top power electronics industry consultants and inventor of the most accurate model available for current-mode control. Dr. Ridley combines the teaching of theoretical and practical concepts, and hands-on experience with the latest high-tech design software and laboratory instruments. This year, there is an expanded laboratory section in the workshops. Attendees are free to choose from 5 power circuits in the afternoon session in order to tailor the lab to match their needs at work and their personal experience level. These circuits include: Buck, Boost, Sepic (including coupled inductors), Flyback, and Forward.

Mornings are steeped in theory, design ideas, control schemes and magnetics applications. Afternoons are spent in the lab exploring and applying concepts, winding custom inductors and transformers, building and testing control circuits, and optimizing designs. Each engineer receives the following: Four days intensive training guaranteed to improve design skills and reduce design cycle time; POWER 4-5-6 Control and Magnetics Design Software, by Dr. Ray Ridley, The industry’s leading software for comprehensive power supply design; and Lab notes, course notes, breakfast and lunch.

Only 30 engineers are accepted, creating a small group environment with maximum assistance in the lab from two seasoned instructors and state-of-the-art equipment. Registration is now open for the U.S.A. and the UK workshops. Dates and locations are: 9-12 June, 2015, Atlanta, U.S.A. and 26-29 October, 2015, Cambridge, UK.
