Free Wheeling Diode for non-isolated Buck Question

2 posts / 0 new

Does the Free Wheeling diode really need a reverse voltage rating of 600V for a 120V AC input?
Thanks!

Hi maxbale,

For a low-line application range of say 90-132Vac, the reverse voltage rating for the free-wheeling diode can be relaxed to 400V.
