Guide and Resources page for Power Electronics
In practical, electric energy is not used in the form in which it was
produced or distributed, all electronic systems require
some form of energy conversion. The device to convert electric energy
from source to load via electronic circuits is
referred to as Power Supply
(although "power converter" is a more accurate term for that device).
There are four types of SMPS: AC to DC (AKA: off-line DC power supply); DC to DC (AKA: voltage or current converter), AC to AC (AKA: frequency changer or cycloconverter), and DC to AC (AKA: inverter). This classification is done based on the form of input and output voltage (AC or DC).
Power supply design is a true cross-disciplinary task, but the field of engineering that deals with the design, optimization and analysis of power conversion circuits and devices is called power electronics. This manual is the power electronics information guide. Here you will find terminology explanation, free simulation software, schematics, and other free online resources on all aspects of switching power supply design, Information on other power electronics related sites reference.
