Power-Shedding Technique Increases LightLoad Efficiency

September 10, 2012 // By Vicor
The new Westcor MicroPAC takes has a factory selectable “power shedding” mode for managing parallel arrays of power modules in an intermediate bus power-distribution system. This mode optimizes efficiency across loads better than conventional approaches commonly used to boost power supply efficiency, such as pulse skipping or low-power “standby supplies.”
