Reference design: An isolated bidirectional DC-DC power supply
Solving environmental and energy problems is an important global issue. While the demand for electric power continues to escalate, the call for energy conservation and the need for highly efficient and compact electric power conversion systems increases rapidly.
For example, in recent years, there has been a series of initiatives worldwide to regulate the use of gasoline vehicles, in a bid to reduce global warming gas emissions. These initiatives occur in both developed and emerging countries such as China and India and have become a global trend. The adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is one of the key responses supporting the trend to reduce our dependence on gasoline. However, there are some challenges to be solved, and the development of charging infrastructures is possibly the most critical one.
The same trend is seeing increased demand for solar power generation systems worldwide. Solar power generation systems are built around highly efficient power conversion circuits that manage the battery storage system and the supply of energy to the power grid, with minimal waste. Emerging countries face increased challenges in the development of their EV charging infrastructure, as they are looking to develop high-performance systems and solar power generation systems in the same, short period. This results in a strong demand for technical support and development resources coming from engineering teams, to enable their smooth and quick transition from development to commercialization.
