What is Power Factor Correction, Explained Power Factor is defined as the ratio of real (true) power flowing through the load to the total (apparent) power in a circuit. Real power is the work performing capacity of the circuit at a particular time and apparent power is nothing but the product of voltage and current….

### Switched Mode Power Supplies

A switched mode power supply (SMPS) is a more modern and efficient take on the older power supplies known as linear supplies. LINEAR SUPPLIES Linear supplies would often take in line voltage, transform this via a low frequency silicon steel core transformer to a lower voltage. Then through rectification using diodes, and filtering using capacitors,…
