Electronics - switch-mode power


A Switch-mode Power Supply (SMPS) is used in an abundant number of applications, much more than a linear supply. But a SMPS is much more complex than a linear design and requires generally more components, especially when the output voltage has to be very stable over a wide range of load and input voltage variations. A rough calculation on efficiency shows why they nevertheless are used in so many applications. Moreover they are generally more compact and lighter.


On switch-mode power supplies, a Full course (2 modules of 3 days) and a Short course (2.5 days) are available.


The Full course discusses the design of switch mode power supplies, general topologies, components of power circuits and switching devices. The topologies discussed are used for applications up to approximately 300 W.


The Short course discusses insights and the characteristics of a SMPS, sufficiently to become a knowledgeable partner of (component) suppliers and users of their products.


After the course, the participant will:
