What is the full form of SMPS


SMPS: Switched-Mode Power Supply/ Switching Mode Power Supply

SMPS stands for Switched-Mode Power Supply. It is an electronic power supply that uses a switching regulator to convert electrical power efficiently. It is also known as Switching Mode Power Supply. It is power supply unit (PSU) generally used in computers to convert the voltage into the computer acceptable range.

This device has the power handling electronic components that converts electrical power efficiently. Switched Mode Power Supply uses a great power conversion technique to reduce overall power loss.

How does SMPS work

The SMPS device uses switching regulators that switches the load current on and off to regulate and stabilize the output voltage. The average of the voltage between the off and on produces the appropriate power for a device. Unlike the linear power supply, the pass transistor of SMPS switches between low dissipation, full-on and full-off mode, and spends very less time in the high-dissipation transitions, which minimizes wasted energy.
