Low Voltage Power Supplies are a key component of electronics-based products. Televisions, radios, personal computers, smartphones, solar systems and almost all electronics systems require the conversion of energy from one form to another. This course provides an overview of techniques in the design of low voltage power supplies. It is intended for readers in the electronics engineering profession or serves as an introductory material for readers in related engineering fields that may make use of low voltage power supplies to monitor and control engineering processes.
This course is the first in a three part series. Part I of the series discusses the basic building blocks of low voltage power supplies, and performance measures used in comparison and design. Parts II and III go into detail about design techniques for linear and switching voltage regulators found in low voltage power supplies.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
