Maximum Load: The Wrong Specification for Pulsed Power


If you are developing power systems for intermittent or pulsed loads you are likely to be sizing the power supply based on the maximum power demanded by the load, even though it adds size, weight and cost to the system.

This webinar explains why peak power is the wrong metric and introduces a different technique – power averaging. You’ll learn how this technique can be implemented in real-world pulsed load applications, significantly improving the performance of the power systems, while reducing size and cost.

This is a must view webinar for anyone designing power systems for pulsed or intermittent loads.
