Research & Design
Our team of creative design and construction engineers provide fast and powerful solutions for any power supply challenge. Our engineers are specialised in energy converter design within a power range from 5 to 1000 Watts. Our solutions are always based on the newest technology, newest circuit topologies and our up to date research activities. Our design process is very structured, fast and well controlled and the result is a reliable and long lasting power supply. We are able to integrate fringe functions required by the system application within the power supply for best technical performance and the most cost effective overall solution.
The design team is led by Professor Werner Wölfle PhD. He graduated from the University of Stuttgart in Germany in 1981 and worked as an engineer in the field of power converter design since 1981 in various German companies. Mr Wölfle himself has vast expertise and experience in converter design for spacecraft, military and industrial application. He has co-authored a book about transformer and inductor design for switch mode power converters and has many publications in the field of power electronics. Mr Wölfle is also Managing Director of Traco Power Solutions Ltd since 1989 and has been appointed Adjunct Professor of the National University of Galway, Ireland in 2008.
In order to provide the most appropriate power supply to our customers, our experienced design and application engineers will visit the customer and view and discuss the application in the appliance, device, equipment or machinery in which the power supply shall be used. These technical discussions will be based on the Functional Requirement Specification of the customer. Traco Power Solutions Ltd will establish a design concept which is based on existing products and circuits. A Performance Specification will be established to reflect the actual behaviour of the power supply, well before the product design has been completed.
Our design and manufacturing process is fast and prototypes can be provided swiftly, the time schedule may vary from 2 to 14 weeks depending on the complexity of the modification of an existing or the construction of a new power supply. Based on a very efficient design and construction process, our engineering charges are extremely competitive and our once off engineering charges are only payable if the power supply performs to the satisfaction of the customer.
