An energy efficiency story
The increasing need for renewable energy resources across a variety of markets makes power efficiency more important than ever. Global energy standards and regulations continue to increase pressure on engineers to develop energy-efficient systems, while balancing the need to keep overall system costs low. The isolated bidirectional DC/DC converter reference design empowers designers to increase efficiency over a wide load range for charger and backup converter operations, while reducing system power consumption.
Key benefits of TI’s new isolated bi-directional DC/DC converter reference design
48-V to 400-V range: The industry’s first design to provide support for energy storage supplies with a wide range of input voltages.
Greater than 93 percent efficiency: A fully tested design with TI products to help designers quickly meet ENERGY STAR guidelines and quicken time to market.
Zero voltage switching (ZVS) in boost mode: Innovative DC/DC converters help enable higher efficiency and lower electromagnetic interference (EMI) than traditional hard-switching converters.
Wide low-voltage DC bus range: Designed to charge a wide range of batteries, the design gives engineers flexibility to design with lithium ion (Li-ion), lithium polymer (Li-poly) and lead-acid battery banks ranging from 36 V to 60 V.
Seamless mode changeover: Less than 100 micro-seconds (µS) mode change over from charging to backup mode helps reduce high-voltage hold up capacitor requirements.
