    High voltage power supply design with off the shelf components?

    Hi, I have been reading a lot about flyback driver circuits for generating high voltages. Tutorials on Youtube are a dime a dozen describing minimalist circuits to drive automotive ignition coils and similar. However these tutorials rarely describe the underlying design theory and considerations...

    UCC28910DR Alternative

    Hello, We have used a flyback switcher UCC28910DR from TI in our board but unfortunately, the lead time for his part is now 63 weeks. Anyone can suggest an alternative? I really want to avoid board redesign. Cheers

    No B+ Voltage on CRT monitor

    Hi, I have a crt monitor that dosent work now, I figured out that a mosfet was running very hot and was shorting the smps(making it stop and restart), I removed it and saw that theres no short circuit now and the led/buttons works but theres no picture, it's the mosfet that generates the B+...

    Start-up and steady-state models of microcontroller

    I've been looking at UCC28C43 models provided by TI. Why do we need two different Spice models such as "Transient steady-state" & "transient start-up" for MOSFET driver IC? How do we use them? When do we need these analyses? Do all microcontrollers in power electronics have such separate models...

    How to Read HR Flyback Schematic

    Hello, Can someone please explain how to know which pins are for the primary coil, the flyback coil and the HV ground. I have measured the resistance between all the pins and get either 1.5 or 0.5 ohms and nothing in between. Also, using the method where a 24v supply is connected, I was...

    LT8316 Flyback Bode Plot

    Hi everyone I am tryig to obtain the gain and frequency plots of a flyback converter controlled with LT8316. LTspice does not provide any frequency response feature but I use middlebrook's method to obtain frequency response. However, result is too weird :( I simply insert a small ac signal...

    Flyback transformer's driver's mosfet wires heating up

    Hello everyone, I'm trying to create a high voltage power supply with a flyback transformer, IRFZ44N and a 220 Ohm resistor. (200 ohm in the diagram should be 220 Ohm ) Here's my schematic. My problem is that the wires connected to drain and source of the mosfet becomes burning hot and melt the...

    What are design requirements of SMPS transformers need to be provided for manufacturer!?

    Hello all, I am designing a 12V, 18W Flyback SMPS and i can't figure exactly the characteristics of high-freq transformer (Both Core, Bobbin) to send for transformer manufacturer!! Can someone already went through these procedures guide me little bit!? Regards,

    Question about inductive spiking

    I'm working on building an electric scooter and yesterday the speed controller had a MOSFET failure that I suspect was caused by inductive spiking. This was very surprising to me because I had a schottky diode in parallel with the motor to prevent this type of failure. I took the speed...

    Flyback converter question using UC3842

    Hi, everyone. I'm building a 110VAC-12VDC 120W Flyback converter using UC3842, and have some problems with the start-up circuit and output PWM signal. In the beginning, the design spec at first: Input: 110VAC Output:12VDC 10A Switching frequency: 107kHz Transformer core: PQ35/35 (unknown...

    How to determine component values and switch dead-times in a fly-back passive snubber circuit

    I have been studying the use of snubber circuits within flyback converters and other hard-switched converters, and doing some simulations to see the results. I have came across one type of snubber called a passive snubber circuit, which uses no resistor and instead some additional passive...

    Designing Step Up Flyback Transformer Help

    Hi. I am trying to build a power supply which output is 2000VDC and 20mA (40W) input is 220V ac (european input). I thought I can use flyback transformer. And I started to design. I selected duty cycle as %50 and frequency as 50kHz (actually I don't know how to select frequency and duty cycle...
