Marco Riccardo Napoleone replied to Windjimes's discussion Dual System Redundant Supply Parallel Question
"A real galvanic separation and a dry parallel are very different.. You didnt have any problems for years but you wasted a lot of energy in reverse current, that's true.."

"Parallel connection of power sources, in electrical industrial plants, is strictly forbidden. A separation devices is mandatory to avoid reverse current flow and to protect the load against a single power failure. Use of silicon or shottky diodes is…"

Marco Riccardo Napoleone replied to Windjimes's discussion Dual System Redundant Supply Parallel Question
"Schottky diodes has a dropout voltage of (in the best case) of 0,3V
With 120 Amps the power loss is P=V*I = 0,3*120=36W...
A lot of power will be disspated in heat and the diode could burn very soon. We developed an ideal diode controller with a…"

Marco Riccardo Napoleone replied to Steven McAdam's discussion Power Module Backup?
"Hi, shottky diodes works better than common rectifier diodes but.. You have a power loss due to the voltage dropout (0,2-0,3V) We experienced a simple and good solution to limit the voltage dropout to 0,05 Volts (It's an ideal diode) rated up to…"
