The Standby Power of Low Power Equipment Must Be Reduced under 100 Milliwatt

Conference paper


Low power equipment like power supplies have to fulfill tightened regulations from International Efficiency Level VI standard with 100 milliwatt standby losses since February 2016. The aim is to significantly lower the losses when the end device is not in use or is not connected to the power supply what we call "no-load" power consumption or standby losses. The United States with 300 million people had in 90's in every household estimated five external power supplies with 15 billion Watt (15 GW) bad linear topology that could be replaced without big efforts. Measurements of the today used low power equipment have much too high losses from 0.5 W to 2 W in standby.
