Demystifying Switching Power Supplies – Raymond A. Mack, Jr. – 1st Edition


This is a crash in the fundamental theory, concepts, and of switching power supplies. It is designed to quickly prepare engineers to make key decisions about for their projects.

Intended for readers who need to quickly understand the key points of switching power supplies, this book covers the 20% of the topic that engineers use, 80% of the time.

Unlike existing switching power books that deal strictly with issues, this book also recognizes the growing importance of “off-the-shelf” commercial switching power supplies, giving readers the background necessary to select the right commercial supply.

This book covers the core essentials of power theory and while keeping mathematics to the absolute minimum necessary. Special attention is given to the selection of appropriate components, such as inductors and transformers, to ensure safe and reliable operation. Engineers, whose main design responsibilities are in other areas, will better understand the strengths and weaknesses of switching and whether such supplies are appropriate for their projects. They will be able to give more meaningful requirements and specifications to those who design switching power supplies.
