What are the benefits of power averaging with regulation?

It is not necessary to power pulsed loads by designing a system as if the peak power requirement is constant. Power averaging with regulation provides a smaller, lighter and more cost-effective solution

Power averaging with regulation is a straightforward solution, but requires careful attention to three main factors:

  • The size of bulk capacitance
  • The voltage and current ranges of the isolators
  • The control-loop bandwidth of the regulator
