Schott Magnetics flyback transformers (also known as line output transformers) are used by many industries in switched-mode power supplies for:
- Power and electrical supply conversion
- DC to DC power conversion
- AC-DC power supplies
- Converters and inverters
- Computers, PoE motors, generators, and electrical pumps
How Flyback Transformers Work
Key power supply parts include a/an:
- Flyback transformer
- Primary switch
- Mutually coupled inductor
- Output rectifier
- Input capacitor
- Output capacitor
All these parts work together to create a simple switch-mode power supply for AC/DC applications.
- The primary switch amplifies the electronic signals within a device.
- When the primary switch is on, energy remains stored in the transformer.
- When the primary switch is off, the transformer current flows.
- Voltage is generated from a few kilovolts up to 50 kilovolts. This is coupled with high-frequency currents from 17 kHz to 50 kHz.
