EMC Design of Switch-Mode Power Converters (1-day course)

Switch-mode power conversion is an extremely noisy technology, and it is very difficult and costly indeed to suppress its emissions for compliance (and happy customers) unless good EMC design techniques are used from the start.

This course covers EMC design techniques to control emissions from all types of switch-mode power converter, at all power levels (from under 1W to over 10MW), from circuit design and PCB layout to packaging and installation, including:

  • DC and AC motor drives for hybrid and electric vehicles
  • DC and AC motor drives for domestic appliances, commercial and industrial sites,including steppers and servos
  • AC power generation from renewable energy sources (e.g. PV, wind, water, tidal, etc.) and batteries.
  • Mains powered AC-DC power supplies and isolating DC-DC converters
  • Non-isolating DC-DC converters
  • Class D audio power amplifiers
  • All types of switch-mode conversion, including AC-DC, DC-DC, DC-AC, AC-AC
  • EMC design techniques for circuits, PCBs, mechanical packaging, systems and installations, for converters of less than 1W to greater than 10MW
