Current generators (Part 1)

Part 1 Here starts a new series of post dedicated to current generators. As usual, the idea is to describe working experimental prototypes that feature few components and quite good performances. Current generators can be found in various applications such as battery chargers (advanced ones, aka multiple stages or intelligent battery chargers), LED drivers and […]

Switch Mode Power Supplies (Part 3)

Part 1, 2, 3 Current sensing. This part is probably the most critical and most uneasy. It is critical because current sensing will protect both the power supply and the driven load from excessive currents and thus excessive amounts of energy dissipated in both the source and the receiver. There are multiple designs available for […]
