Abstract

Undesirable radiated electromagnetic fields because of switched current are causing the Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). This disturbance affects electrical circuit due to electromagnetic radiation emitted from EMI source. The effect of EMI can be diminished by reducing the generated EMI in the source. In the low-power circuit by using a grounded shield the magnitude of emitted EMI may be reduced to ignorable value, but in high-power circuits due to the cooling limitations, using the ground shield is not feasible. In this paper, it is attempted to reduce the EMI of high-power non-isolated DC-to-DC converter based on Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and despiking of input current by using the passive low-pass filter.
