Today, many systems from electric vehicles and home energy storage to communications infrastructure, use batteries to enable portable power or provide a fall back in the event that mains power fails.
If demands for batteries continue to grow, engineers need an easier approach to designing battery-powered systems. In particular, the output voltage of batteries can vary significantly; power systems must deliver constant voltage to the load and act as a current source to charge the battery; and there is a continual demand for higher efficiency.
This webinar explains how flexible power components can be used to shorten the design cycle, simplify the power system and reduce cost, weight and size while increasing efficiency.
This webinar covers:
Why wide input and output voltage ranges are important
How to design scalable power systems to meet current and future needs
Reducing costs by using flexible components
Maximizing power density and efficiency in systems with batteries
