Every year, the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exhibition (APEC) attracts some of the most well-known leading power engineers in the country. Whether delving into the various uses of semiconductors or demonstrating cutting-edge design tweaks to improve the efficiency of power instruments, APEC has something to pique everyone’s interest.
The maximum power theorem, better known as the maximum power transfer theorem, is an essential tool for ensuring successful system design. Put simply, this theorem states that the maximum power that can be transferred from source to load is 50%, which occurs when source impedance is exactly matched to load impedance. The theorem is not as simple as it seems at first glance, however, and can be [...]
In order to keep your equipment running smoothly, avoid unplanned downtime, and properly maintain equipment, you need to first ensure that your electrical systems are in check and free of common problems. Electrical impedance, in particular, can hinder the performance of your equipment and cause major, system wide issues.
Noise and other electromagnetic interference (EMI) can pass through electronic equipment as a result of coupling, conductively, via the equipment wires. When this noise occurs on a single line, it adds to the carried signal and is referred to as differential mode noise.
Across all types of industries and applications, transformers must meet specific performance and safety guidelines. But medical grade transformers, in particular, are subject to very stringent regulations in order to protect patient safety and well being.
Benjamin Franklin once said “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
Power inductors are found in every application that requires current control — everything from small household appliances to electronic devices to the country’s power grid. For this reason, inductors are among the most important magnetic components in the industry.
Triad Magnetics is thrilled to announce that we’ll be exhibiting at APEC 2017: the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition. The premier event for applied power electronics, this conference will bring together industry leaders from across the globe. Held at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla., from March 26 to 30, APEC will feature various educational seminars, networking [...]
