## electronics tuf

Salahshoor,

TUF is the ratio of DC power provided by a rectifier to the average of the VA ratings of the primary and secondary.

~

TUF = Pdc/((VAp + VAs)/2) = 2Pdc/(VAp + VAs).

~

TUF is a function of the rectifier topology.

Regards,

Kral

## Re: TUF???? in power electronics

Please take a look at the following presentation

http://cas.web.cern.ch/acceleratorin.../Visintini.pdf

it not only gives the definition of TUF, but it also provides the TUF for

several well-known topologies.

Best regards,
