Why you should attend this free event

Why you should attend this free event

Designing high-performance power systems continues to increase in complexity year after year. Utilizing a solid design methodology for high performance power conversion is essential to achieving first-time success. You will learn new techniques for EMI mitigation, thermal modeling, PCB Layout, DC-DC designs and implementing AC-DC Front ends. Real-world applications will be used whenever possible to illustrate the workshops. During this daylong event you will learn from industry experts and Vicor applications engineers. They will help you identify common pitfalls and guide you on a path to success when designing high performance power systems.

IET London: Savoy Place, 2 Savoy Place London WC2R 0BL


9:30 to 10:00 AM

Registration


10:00 to 10:15 AM

Welcome

Mountbatten Room


10:15 to 11:15 AM

Professor Mark Johnson

Mountbatten Room

Professor Johnson will be discussing Challenges and Opportunities for UK Power Electronics.

This presentation will cover four topic areas:
Growth areas and opportunities for Power Electronics,
The UK Industrial Strategy: Driving the Electric Revolution,
Overview of technological challenges for power electronics,
Converter-in-Package: an integrated approach to realising the full potential of wide band-gap semiconductors.


11:15 to 11:30 AM

Coffee break


11:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Track A - Mountbatten Room

Workshop: EMI challenges and troubleshooting techniques

Presented by Applications Engineering

Without proper consideration, EMI can derail projects and create costly delays. With a real-world troubleshooting example, you will learn about basic EMI measurement, common and differential noise sources and identification methods, conducted EMI pre-compliance testing, layout issues, etc.

Track B - Siemens Room

Workshop: Modular DC-DC system design done right

Presented by Applications Engineering

Real-world systems comprise more than just the DC-DC converter itself. Using a case study to examine the requirements of module integration into a DC-DC system, you will learn topics such as input and output filtering, protections, compatibility with the source and load dynamics.


12:30 to 1:15 PM

Lunch


1:15 to 2:15 PM

Track A - Mountbatten Room

Workshop: Avoiding common AC-DC design pitfalls

Presented by Applications Engineering

Design-in of AC-DC front end modules can be complicated. This session will provide a straightforward approach for success, covering such topics as source impedance considerations, inrush current, filter resonance and damping, PFC, faults, fusing, system stability and safety.

Track B - Siemens Room

Workshop: High-performance PCB layout and thermal design techniques

Presented by Applications Engineering

Our experts will share their optimization techniques addressing the following topics: applying thermal models and simulation, PCB layout for effective thermal management, power/signal routing and integrity in high density, high current applications to minimize board losses and maximize performance.


2:15 to 2:30 PM
