Auto Compensation Enhances Power Supply Designs

In the Power Electronics article “Auto Compensation Enhances Power Supply Designs” Editor-in-Chief, Sam Davis, addresses the use of auto compensation in switching power supply design and highlights CUI’s Novum® Advanced Power line.

The article begins, “Virtually all switching power supply designs include a closed control loop with negative feedback from the output to input. This requires a compensation network to adjust the supply’s closed loop frequency response to ensure stability and optimize transient response. Today, some voltage regulator ICs employ automatic compensation that simplifies and improves this design task. For more information, see the sidebar “Voltage Regulator Compensation”.”
