Green mode fly-back converters

Posted by Paul Lamb on 01 Apr 2015

Many power supply products are marketed under the “Green Power” label meaning that they are designed to maximise efficiency across the load range (known as average active mode efficiency) and minimise power consumed at no load. Active mode efficiency is the average of four measurements made at 25, 50, 75 & 100% of full load.

There are multiple pieces of legislation applicable to external power supplies (EPS) including the ErP directive (Energy related Products), CEC (California Energy Commission), EISA (Energy Independence & security Act), NRCan (Natural resources Canada). Many power supply makers are also marketing component power supplies with similar specifications designed to enable users to meet green criteria for end applications.
