Title
(EN) PRE-BIAS CONTROLLER FOR SWITCHING POWER CONVERTERS
(FR) CONTRÔLEUR DE PRE-POLARISATION POUR CONVERTISSEURS DE PUISSANCE À DÉCOUPAGE
Abstract
(EN)
A pre-bias control circuit for a switching power converter detects the slope of the output voltage over time and outputs an OPEN command when the slope detected is more NEGATIVE than a pre-defined threshold and a pre-charge current that flows back through the switching power converter has reached a maximum value. In response, the synchronous rectifier switch OPENs overriding the typical control waveform to control the energy from the output voltage from flowing back through the switching power converter. The switching power converter may be any converter that includes a synchronous rectifier, such as a flyback converter, a forward converter, a buck converter, in a single-ended, double-ended and/or multi-phased configuration.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un circuit de commande de pré-polarisation pour un convertisseur de puissance à découpage qui détecte la pente de la tension de sortie au fil du temps et délivre une instruction OUVRIR lorsque la pente détectée est plus NÉGATIVE qu'un seuil prédéfini et qu'un courant de précharge qui est renvoyé à travers le convertisseur de puissance à découpage a atteint une valeur maximale. En réponse, le commutateur de redresseur synchrone S'OUVRE en supplantant la forme d'onde de commande typique pour empêcher l'énergie résultant de la tension de sortie de refluer à travers le convertisseur de puissance à découpage. Le convertisseur de puissance à découpage peut être n'importe quel convertisseur qui comprend un redresseur synchrone, tel qu'un convertisseur à transfert indirect, un convertisseur à transfert direct, un convertisseur abaisseur, dans une configuration asymétrique, à double extrémité et/ou à plusieurs phases.
