Figure 1: Power stage of the flyback converter (simplified)

Isolated flyback converters often use optocouplers in the feedback loop to regulate the output voltage. As part of the compensation circuit, its parameters such as CTR influence the control loop and must be taken into account in the flyback converter design. The flyback converter is an isolated switching power
Slightly more than forty years ago, the silicon power MOSFET was a disruptive technology that displaced the bipolar transistor as the power conversion device of choice for the semiconductor industry – and a $12B market emerged.
