Optimising the Quasi Resonant Flyback Transformer

14 November 2014

      Most of the Isolated Offline Power Supplies less than 100W are flybacks. These converters have many advantages over other topologies. It is the least expensive isolated topology because it uses the fewest number of components. The transformer behaves as a coupled inductor, which stores the energy in the gap. This eliminates the [...]
