Nobody wants their system to fail or, worse yet, burst into flames. But that’s what can happen if reverse polarity is allowed to do its damage.
Reverse polarity is the result of steady-state reverse bias or a negative transient. It’s a dangerous electrical condition that can be difficult to preve[......]
The input voltage and the input capacitance can influence performance in a flyback converter. Let’s look at how to analyze the input voltage and calculate the input capacitance.
When a flyback controller is operating in steady state, the rectified AC input voltage (through DIN1 to DIN4) provides[......]
It’s a problem that’s been around for as long as there have been battery-powered systems: you load the battery the wrong way, with the poles inverted, and create a reverse-polarity event. The system fails temporarily or is permanently damaged.
Purpose-built batteries, designed to fit the system t[......]
