AbstractEngineers are always looking for more reliable or longer life power converters. Electrolytic capacitor is the critical component to be considered. Using the powerful calculation tools like Mathcad and Matlab and allowable life model, this paper aims at proposing a method to optimize the circuit design to lower the current ripple through the electrolytic capacitor in order to reach for longer capacitor life. Comparison between two modes of operation and the two converter topologies, Forward and Flyback, are made as well. This work provides a guideline to design power converters for long life application like LED driver. ©2010 IEEE.
