The flyback topology is one of the most used circuit topologies in the field of power conversion,
especially in lower to medium power application (such as AC-DC adapters, for
example). The reason for such a high level of utilization of the flyback
topology is rooted in its simplicity and low cost of implementation, as well as
in the fact that it can operate efficiency over a very large range of input
voltage. The AC-DC adapters with power under 70W, to gain the capability of
operating all over the world, requires an operation from an alternating input
voltage ranging from 90Vac to 264Vac, a total range of 3:1.
In addition to
that, the new PD 3.0 standard for power delivery requires that the AC-DC adapters
provide an output voltage ranging from 3.3V to 20V which is a range of 6:1.
The “Ideal Flyback”
topology is based on a standard QR Flyback wherein the leakage inductance
energy is harvested in a very simple way, without the use of an active clamp
and the energy which is harvested from the leakage inductance energizes the
