Designing the Resistor-Capacitor-Diode (RCD) Snubber of a Flyback Converter

snubber of flyback fig 1

Consisting of very few components, Flyback circuitry is one of the simplest topologies. It is a very popular choice for low- and medium-power applications such as battery chargers, adapters, DVD players and LED drivers. However, regardless of its circuit simplicity, the design of a reliable Flyback[......]
