The bestselling reference--packed with essential new material! The leading hands-on guide in this rapidly expanding area of electronics, Keith Billing's revision of the Switchmode Power Supply Handbook brings additional state-of-the-art techniques and developments to engineers at all levels. Offering sound working knowledge of the latest in topologies and clear, step-by-step approaches to component decisions, this handbook gives power supply designers practical, solutions-oriented design guidance, free of unnecessarily complicated mathematical derivations and theory. The Handbook features many new fully worked examples, as well as numerous nomograms--everything you need to design today's smaller, faster, and cooler systems. Turn to the new Part 4, and you'll find cutting-edge design expertise on: electronic ballast; power factor correction. In addition, the previously updated parts 1-3 still provide fully applicable sections on: thermal management techniques; transformers, chokes, input filters, EMI control, converters, snubber circuits, auxiliary systems, and much more.
