Learn how to protect against overcurrent damage in non-mobile applications

June 14, 2017 Jamie Leland, Content Assistant

In an electric power system, overcurrent resulting from short circuits, excessive load, incorrect design, or a ground fault can lead to excessive generation of heat, and the risk of fire or damage to equipment. Learn how to ensure that currents don’t exceed safe levels in day two of Embedded University’s three-day series, Designing for Safety in Non-Mobile Applications, which will take place on Wednesday, June 21 at 11 a.m. EDT.

Our expert instructor, Charles J. Lord, PE, President and Chief Trainer at Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation, will explain how to protect against overcurrent damage using a 12-V buck regulator family as the design example. You’ll also get an understanding of how linear and low drop-out (LDO) regulators operate, including their key performance parameters.
