Abstract:

Ripple, noise, step changes in voltage, and high AC impedance are common faults of fuze batteries which can be corrected by the use of ripple filter. A low-cost filter can attenuate these undesirable signals by at least 20 dB. The ripple filter acts as a capacitance multiplier, and gives the effect of producing a large shunt capacitance across the battery. The filter reduces the AC impedance of the battery without affecting its DC internal resistance. This report covers a convenient design procedure as well as theory and performance. Author
