Switching and conduction loss testing, Part 6 of 10

June 7, 2016 Tektronix Experts

In this installment of our series on power supply testing, we’ll walk you through the steps to test your power supply for switching and conduction loss.

Bear in mind that switching and conduction losses through power switches and magnetics are huge contributors to the overall loss of a system. This is why it’s crucial to minimize these losses as accurately as possible.

 

Here’s an example of switching and conduction losses as measured by an MSO5000B oscilloscope.
