2 Switching Power Supply Classification
The people side of switching power supply technology is related to the development of power electronic devices, switching frequency conversion technology development side, the two promote each other to promote the switching power supply to more than two-digit annual growth rate toward the light, small, thin, low noise, high reliability, interference direction. Switching power supply can be divided into AC / DC and DC / DC two categories, DC / DC converter is now modular, and the design and production process maturity and standardization at home and abroad, and has been recognized by the user, but AC / DC modular, because their characteristics make the modular process, the experience is more complex technology and manufacturing process problems. The following are two types of switching power supply for the structure and properties to set.
2.1 DC / DC transformation
DC / DC transformation is fixed, variable DC voltage is converted into DC voltage, also known as the DC chopper. Chopper work in two ways, one pulse width modulation Ts constant change ton (GM), and second, frequency modulation, ton constant change Ts (easy to produce interference). The specific circuit consists of the following categories:
(1) Buck circuit - Buck chopper, the output voltage Uo is less than the average input voltage Ui, the same polarity.
(2) Boost Circuit - Boost chopper, the output voltage Uo is greater than the average input voltage Ui, the same polarity.
(3) Buck-Boost Circuit - buck or boost chopper, the output voltage Uo is greater than or less than the average input voltage Ui, polar opposite, inductive transmission.
(4) Cuk circuit - buck or boost chopper, the output voltage Uo is greater than or less than the average input voltage UI, opposite polarity, capacitance transmission.
Soft-switching technology makes today's DC / DC undergone a qualitative leap, the United States VICOR company designed and manufactured a variety of ECI soft-switching DC / DC converter, its maximum output power with 300W, 600W, 800W and so on, the corresponding power density (6 , 2,10,17) W/cm3, efficiency (80-90)%. Japan NemicLambda a company's new soft switch technology, high frequency switching power supply module RM Series, its switching frequency (200 ~ 300) kHz, power density has reached 27 W/cm3, synchronous rectifier (MOS-FET to replace Shaw Schottky diode), is the circuit efficiency to 90%.
2.2 AC / DC transform
AC / DC transformation is to transform AC to DC, the power flow can be two-way flow of power flow from the power load, known as the "rectification", the power flow from the load back to power as "active inverter." AC / DC converter input AC 50/60Hz, as must be rectified, filtered, the relatively large size of the filter capacitor is necessary, while having to safety standards (such as UL, CCEE, etc.) and EMC Directive restrictions (such as IEC, FCC, CSA), AC input side of the EMC filter must be added to meet safety standards and use of components, so that restrictions AC / DC power supplies small volume, addition, because the internal high-frequency, high voltage, high current switching, making settlement more difficult EMC electromagnetic compatibility, also pairs of internal high-density Anzhuangdianlu Shejitichu high demands, for the same reason, high voltage, high current Kaiguan make Dianyuangongzuo Xiaohaozengtai, limiting AC / DC converter module of the process, it must be used to power system design to optimize the efficiency of a certain level of satisfaction.
AC / DC transformation circuit according to wiring can be divided into two, half-wave circuit, full-wave circuit. Press the power phases can be divided into several, single, three-phase, multi-phase. Circuit can be divided into quadrants by a quadrant, two quadrant, three quadrant, four quadrants.
3, the selection of switching power supply
Interference in the input switching power supply performance, due to the characteristics of its own circuit (Tandem), the average input disturbances, such as surge voltage is difficult to pass, the output voltage stability index of this technology compared with the linear power have greater advantages, its output voltage can reach (0.5 ~ 1)%. Switching power supply module as an integrated power electronic devices, in the selection should note the following:
3.1 The choice of output current
Due to the high efficiency switching power supply, generally 80% or more, so in their choice of output current should be accurately measured or calculated maximum absorption current electrical equipment, in order to be used in switching power supply has a high cost performance, Usually the output is calculated as: Is = KIf, type in: Is-switching power supply rated output current; If-electric equipment, the maximum absorption current; K-margin coefficient, usually taken from 1.5 to 1.8;
Switching Power Supply linear power supply will produce more than the interference, common mode interference on sensitive electrical equipment, grounding and shielding measures should be taken by ICE1000. EN61000. EMC FCC and other restrictions on the shape of switching power supply electromagnetic compatibility EMC measures are taken, so switching power supply should normally be with EMC EMC filters. Such as Leader & Harvest HA series switching power supply technology, to access land or access to FG terminal user case, be able to meet the electromagnetic compatibility requirements.
3.3 Protection Circuits
Switching power supply must have been in the design flow, overheating, short circuit protection, it should be the preferred protection in the design of switching power supply modules are available, and the technical parameters of its protection circuit with electrical equipment should match the operating characteristics to avoid damage to electrical equipment or switching power supply.
4 of switching power supply technology trends
Switching power supply direction of development is high-frequency, high reliability, low power, low noise, interference and modular. Since switching power supply light, small, thin key technology is the high frequency, thus, leading switching power supply manufacturers abroad are committed to synchronize the development of new components of high intelligence, especially to improve the loss of secondary rectifiers and power rail oxygen (Mn-Zn) material increase scientific and technological innovation to enhance the high frequency and higher magnetic flux density (Bs) obtained a high magnetic properties, while the small capacitor is a key technology. SMT technology allows switching power supply has made considerable progress, both sides of the circuit board layout components to ensure that the switching power supply of light, small, thin. High frequency switching power supply will be bound to the traditional PWM switching technology innovation, realization of ZVS, ZCS soft switching power supply switching technology has become a mainstream technology, and a substantial increase in the switching power supply efficiency. For high reliability, the U.S. manufacturer of switching power supply by reducing operating current to reduce junction temperature and other measures to reduce the stress of the device makes the improved reliability of the product.
Modular switching power supply is the general trend of development can be composed of modular power distributed power systems can be designed to N +1 redundant power systems, and parallel way to achieve the capacity expansion. Switching power supply noise for the big run this shortcoming, if the exclusive pursuit of its high-frequency noise also will inevitably increase, Er using some of the resonant converter circuit technology, in theory, can achieve higher frequency can reduce the noise, but some the practical application of resonant conversion technology technical problems still exist, it still required much work in this area in order to make the technology to practical technology.
Power electronics technology innovation, so that switching power supply industry has a bright future. Switching power supply industry in China should speed up the pace of development, we must take the technical innovation, out of the Industry and Academia with Chinese characteristics development road, as the rapid development of our national economy to contribute.
