How to half the size of electrolytics in universal ac-dc PSUs

This post was originally published on this site

In a nice example of lateral thinking, Power Integrations has found a way to halve the space needed for electrolytic reservoir capacitors in universal mains ac-dc PSUs up to 65W. It relies on automatically switching a low-voltage capacitor in parallel with a high voltage capacitor, springing from the observation that, for the same amount of …
