select special capacitors with low ESR to keep output voltage ripple small use proper capacitor (or several capacitors connected in paralell) with permissible RMS current much higher than the maximum RMS current value in real circuit Select capacitors with biggest admissible dimensions as they perform better heat transfer to the environment (due to power losses on ESR) make external series resitances of electrical leads and connections as low as possible and symmetrical (traces on PCB, wires, metal buses etc.) place electrolytic capacitors apart from components generating heat (power resistors, heat sinks etc.) rtrt rtrt U OUT =U 0 ZZSZZS DD1DD1

Output filter inductor 1. Magnetic material choise depends on: - operating frequency - for high AC currents (magnetic field) and frequencies over 1 kHz ferrite materials are generally used due to low power losses, for low over 1 kHz ferrite materials are generally used due to low power losses, for low frequencies ferrosilicon cores should be used due to high saturation flux density frequencies ferrosilicon cores should be used due to high saturation flux density Bs (windings with smaller number of turns – lower „copper” losses), modern Bs (windings with smaller number of turns – lower „copper” losses), modern technological solutions – nanocrystallic or amorphic cores may be used up to the technological solutions – nanocrystallic or amorphic cores may be used up to the frequencies of 100 kHz as they combine adavantages of ferrite and iron cores frequencies of 100 kHz as they combine adavantages of ferrite and iron cores (high Bs and extremely low core power losses) (high Bs and extremely low core power losses) - I DC /I AC relation - core dimensions, air gap width, so called „window area” - mechanical properties – mounting method, resistance to temperature, shocks, vibrations itp. shocks, vibrations itp.

Air-gap lenght calculation permability of the air (=1) magnetic field constant (4  10 -7 ) Empirical method 1. 1. Make the winding with the number of turns z L > z Lmin, use wire of maximum possible diameter and then under the nominal load try to decrease the air gap step by step measuring the inductor current waveform (output ripple) 2. 2. Set the air-gap, which gives lowest ripple but without any sign of saturation I L (U rC ) optimal air-gap
