Tentamen ET4384 Design of Low-power power supplies.

14 May 2013 Problem 1 Given is the foliowing waveform & circuit:

Herein: Crss=5pF, Coss=40pF, Rd=2 Ohm, Rg=5 Ohm, Cgs=lnF, Co=10pF, Lp=400uH, Vt=3V Vdrainmax=550V, Vvalley=250V. The capacitances are all assumed to be linear (voltage independent). Rd denotes the internal resistance of the driver when it discharges the gate. Cx is an external capacitor that might be useful, when connected it is parallel to Coss. Questions: In case Ipeak^at switch-off = 5A: 1. What is tine switch-off energy? 2. What are the total switching losses (energy)? 3. Could the addition of an additional Cx reduce switchoff losses, and, if yes, what is the value to reach zero switch-off losses? 4. In case of additional Cx, what value of Cx leads to the minimum of the total switching losses? 5. For what level of Ipeak are the switch-off losses just zero?

Problem 2. Write down at least 5 possible circuits to limit the/iia )dnTum voltage across the switch in a mains isolated flyback. Give of all the pro's and cons.
