Powervation to Discuss Digital Adaptive Control Techniques at Darnell's Power Forum

Powervation Inc., the provider of digital power management ICs and software that maximize power system efficiency and reduce system cost, will discuss digital adaptive control techniques at the upcoming Darnell's Power Forum in September.

Based around a study of computer memory applications, the Powervation paper demonstrates how adaptive digital control can be used to greatly improve system stability, transient response and voltage regulator output impedance stability. Comments Powervation's Director of Product Marketing, David New: "Although this paper uses computing memory as a platform to demonstrate a limitation of fixed compensation controller and to highlight some of the benefits of adaptive digital control, many other applications exist where power supplies need to support a wide range of loads, or where the loads can change though the course of the power supply's life. Therefore the techniques discussed will be of interest to a wide audience."

Darnell's Power Forum (DPF) is an international event that focuses on advanced yet practical power technologies that enable the successful development of next-generation power systems. The Forum creates a synergy from discussions broadly focused on power management, energy efficiency, advanced components, energy storage, smart grid innovations and more.
