- Required certification or standards
- Target cost
Let’s discuss minimum specifications power supplies manufacturer will be looking for, before starting the design phase.
Power Supplies Input voltage
Given that power supply of interest is an AC/DC or DC/DC converter, the input is naturally from an AC or DC power. AC power for homes and offices is governed by established nominal voltages. While in minimum is 100VAC, worldwide range encompassing 100VAC to 240VAC. However, since these numbers are nominal values, including tolerances, in many cases a lower limit of -10%, which is 89VAC, and an upper limit of +10%, or 264VAC . Since in some countries electrical power is poorly regulated, establishing adequate tolerances requires considerable experience and an understanding of the actual conditions that prevail in a given country. In a summary, the input voltage range for the power supply device being designed is determined by the conditions in the country to which the systems are shipped.
Worldwide residential power supply voltages (nominal):
Power Supplies Output voltage/accuracy/current
The output voltage from the AC/DC converter must be set to the DC voltage required by the system and the circuit board for which the converter is intended. In the case of an industrial device, common standard voltages such as 48DC, 24DC and 12VDC are predominant. Over the last years, it became more common to see the converter output voltage of 5VCD, 3.3VDC, and other PIC direct-drive voltages. Usually, a ±5% accuracy requirement must be met by output voltages, subject to the requirements imposed by the particular device. In the design process, the parts and methods to meet the required voltage accuracy need to be evaluated.
Another critical requirement in output specifications is the level of output current, capable of supplying the current required by the circuit for which power is to be supplied and at a level sufficient to maintain the regulated output voltage. Because providing a large margin broadens the tolerance range at the expense of increased parts cost and size, information on the maximum load current is of critical. Moreover, for situations where load transients are likely to occur, the response characteristics need to be evaluated. Inadequate response properties can potentially result in system faults, such as system resets.
In addition to evaluating the required output in terms of currents, if the power supply system is to be configured using individual switching regulators based upon the output from an AC/DC converter, the output current requirements must be considered based on output power requirements. Because switching regulators perform power conversions, if a 12VDC output is produced by an AC/DC converter and if the next-stage switching regulator that takes this output as an input has an 80% efficiency, producing 5V/0.A, the input power will be 5W. In simple terms, fulfilling this power requirement means that since the 12VDC output needs to be only 5W, an output current of 0.42A will be good enough. In many cases, the output capability of a power supply unit that performs power conversions is indicated in terms of wattage.
Power Supplies Output ripple voltage
“Ripple” refers to pulsation. Converted DC voltages contain pulsation that is related to the frequency of the input AC power supply or the frequency of the switching conversion. Although naturally the conversion process includes smoothing/filtering, that does not reduce the pulsation to zero. If there is a 300mVp-p ripple centered on a 5VDC output, for example, the maximum value will be 5.2V, with a minimum of 4.8V. This amounts to 5V±3%, barely satisfying the general accuracy requirement of ±5%. A 300mVp-p ripple on a 3.3V output, however, results in 3.3V±5%.
AC/DC converters produce a output voltage, which is referred to as a bus voltage. In a configuration where this is used as an input voltage and the voltages required by circuits are provided by individual voltage regulators, the ripple requirements on an AC/DC converter may be relaxed. In situations where power is directly supplied to a low-voltage device, such as PIC, the presence of ripple voltage may present a problem. At any rate, the ripple voltage should be made as small as possible, and the acceptable tolerance levels must be set by considering the amount of footprint and cost for filters.
Power Supplies Insulation voltage tolerance
Successful compliance demand specific insulation for the AC/DC converter. Industrial equipment and even more so medical devices require insulation, and in some cases the identification of specific insulation level is provided. The insulation for an AC/DC converter refers to the electric non-conduction between the primary (AC input) and secondary (DC output) sides, a function which is provided by the transformer, air gaps and optcouplers for communication. Insulation is specified in terms of an insulation structure of the PCB assembly, insulation class as well as voltage levels such as 3kVAC. The design of a transformer requires knowledge of standards and components. For further details on this topic, documents on applicable standards should be consulted.
Power Supplies Operating temperature range
Systems and devices for which a power supply unit is to be designed may be subject to specifications on operating temperature range. An AC/DC converter must be composed of control ICs and components that are capable of meeting those requirements. Also, although device specifications are mostly represented in terms of ambient temperatures, if an AD/DC converter is mounted in a case, operating temperature ranges must be established in terms of in-the-case temperatures. AC/DC converters generate considerable amounts of heat. If the temperature exceeds the ratings for the components used in the device, problems may be generated. Extensive validation in regard to temperatures must be performed. Power supplies manufacturer generally target temperature range -10C ~ +70C.
Power Supplies Efficiency
Efficiency refers to the ratio of input power to output power, expressed in percentage figures. The latest crop of SMPS are manufactured with peak efficiency over 90%. An 80% efficiency means 20% losses, which basically turn into heat. Given that nowadays efficiency improvement is an essential requirement, we need to have a good understanding of relationship between efficiency and heat. Improving efficiency requires studying the specific conversion method, control ICs, and external parts that are employed.
Power Supplies No-load input power
“No-load input power” refers to the amount of input power that is consumed when no output current is generated, that is, the amount of self-consumed electrical power in the absence of a load. Operating losses which amount to a wasted energy, must be minimized, as presented by EnergyStar ratings. For reducing self-consumption, circuit configuration and the types of control ICs play critical roles.
It is recommended to engage with Power Supply manufacturer engineer at the early stage of the design. A valuable input can be made by manufacturer that consist of information on materials available, latest technological improvements and minor design changes suggestions that can result in measurable improvements and cost casings. Evaluating power supply types is important at the beginning. You may want to conduct power supply samples testing early in the design process to evaluate performance.
