2 EMI solutions: Passive filter
Conventional EMI solutions depend on passive filter using inductors and capacitors: Inductors: CMC, DMC Capacitors: X-cap, Y-cap There are limitations when using passive filters: Inductors: Large size and high conduction loss Capacitors: leakage current specifications

3 Active EMI cancellation IC WT6001: An effective EMI solution – Y-cap booster
A patented technology developed in PowerELab. An SO-8 IC WT6001 developed with W2. Equivalent to a Y-cap with very large value within the EMI concerned frequency range only. No boosting effect in the leakage current test concerned frequency range (50 – 800Hz). Greatly reduce the common mode inductor size and requirements. Reduce converter size and improve conversion efficiency. Provide effective and efficient EMI solution. Built-in electrical surge protection which can easily pass the EN and EN immunity standard.

4 Applications: Replace passive Y-cap
Replaced by Y-cap booster LISN

5 Effect measurable by oscilloscope when using Y-cap booster
Noise voltage across Y-cap in switching converter Noise voltage across Y-cap booster in switching converter More application examples can be found in the datasheet of WT6001

6 Practical application examples
The original EMI filter design cannot pass the EN55022 class B limit. Filter component: 2 x 20mm high mu toroid for common mode filters 2 x 0.15uF X – cap 1 x 1n Y1-cap connected between primary and secondary

7 Practical application examples: Original filter schematic
It is a commonly used filter configuration L2B is wound with many turns which intends to suppress the low to mid-frequency common mode noise. Its leakage inductance together with C1 also provides differential mode noise filtering L1B is a single layer, bi-filer wound common mode choke for high frequency common mode noise filtering

8 Practical application examples: EMI measurement
Y-cap: From 1n to 3n3 DM noise Improved but not enough CM noise Failure was identified to be caused by: Insufficient leakage inductance of the common mode choke for DM noise attenuation. The two common mode choke cannot effectively block out the common mode current. Further increase of Y-cap can reduce CM noise but fail to meet leakage current specifications.

9 Practical application examples: Solution using Y-cap booster
Y-cap booster is used to replace the primary to secondary Y-cap After using the Y-cap booster, L2B is replaced by a small differential mode filter and L1B is reduced to a 9mm toroid with only a few turns to tackle the high frequency common node noise. The test results pass the required limit lines

10 Practical application examples: Filter comparison: Before and After...
Failed design even with more cost, loss and bigger size for the filter Passed design using Y-cap booster with much smaller filter size that saves cost, power and space

11 Another practical application examples: Filter comparison: Before and After...
Original EMI solution using passive filter in ATX converter New EMI solution using Y-cap booster in ATX converter

12 Conclusion Y-cap booster breaks the relationship between the Y-cap values and leakage current requirement. Greatly reduce product design period and resources. It can be applied to any position with conventional Y-cap. Significantly reduce the size and loss of common mode choke implies higher power density and efficiency. EMI less sensitive to transformer winding capacitance implies more rooms for improving transformer coupling. Very suitable for equipment required low leakage current like medical equipment.
