We live in a world where almost everything we use is powered by electricity. Raw electrical power sources can be mains alternating voltage, batteries, wind mill turbine output, solar panel output, batteries etc. In almost all cases a product designer will need a converter to transform the raw electrical power into an output compatible with the intended use. Power Supply manufacturers offer a wide variety of off-the-shelf converters for this purpose. However, there are many cases where this broad market offering will not suit the designer’s need.
