Briefly, the pulse width modulation signal PWM outputted by the pulse width modulator 207 controls the switching switch SW to be turned on or off, and the duty ratio of the pulse width modulation signal PWM is mainly by the feedback signal. And decided. Since the feedback circuit 205 adjusts the magnitude of the current outputting the feedback signal according to the received control signal, the pulse The width modulator 207 determines the duty ratio of the output pulse width modulation signal PWM by determining the current level of the photodetecting element 2053, thereby indirectly controlling the output voltage of the AC/DC converter 2.

In general, the energy stored on the primary side of the AC/DC converter 2 is mainly transmitted to the primary side coil Wp in accordance with the switching of the switching switch SW.

In practice, since the feedback circuit 205 mostly uses an optical coupler, and the optical coupler element can be generally divided into digital or analog forms, it is worth noting that the present invention is not limited thereto. Therefore, in the preferred embodiment of the present invention, the control circuit 203 may further include a digital analog converter 2035, which is electrically equivalent to the digital analog converter 2035, in consideration of the use of the optical coupler component in the analogy form.

According to the above, in the circuit structure of the conventional AC/DC converter, the circuit on the secondary side needs to have multiple components such as resistors and capacitors, and the output voltage generated by the secondary side coil is detected by the voltage division method. The size, and then the feedback signal is adjusted to control the pulse width modulator to output a corresponding pulse width modulation signal to control the switching frequency of the switching switch. Therefore, for different voltage quality requirements, in consideration of electronic component errors and the like, the conventional AC/DC converter needs to be calibrated for components such as resistors or capacitors on the secondary side to reduce the output generated by the secondary side coil. The error value of the voltage. In contrast, the present invention provides an AC/DC converter, which is mainly an analog-to-digital converter and a logic circuit as a control circuit of the AC/DC converter, which is generated by a secondary-side coil by an analog-to-digital converter.

Referring to FIG. 2, in a preferred embodiment of the present invention, the control circuit 203 further includes a standby command setter 2037. The standby command setter 2037 is electrically connected to the logic circuit 2033 for setting whether the AC/DC converter 2 is Perform a standby mode of operation.

Please refer to FIG. 2 and FIG. 3 simultaneously. FIG. 3 is a flow chart showing the operation of the control circuit of the AC/DC converter in the standby state according to an embodiment of the present invention. When the AC/DC converter 2 performs the standby mode of operation, the logic circuit 2033 of the control circuit 203 compares the digital signal with the first threshold and the second threshold to output a corresponding control signal, thereby controlling the pulse width modulator. 207 output pulse width modulation signal PWM, and the first critical value is greater than the second critical value.

In detail, when the AC/DC converter 2 performs the standby mode, the logic circuit 2033 first compares the digital signal with the first threshold to determine whether the digital signal is greater than or equal to the first threshold. If the digital signal is less than the first critical value, then step S307 is reached. In step 307, the control circuit 203 outputs a corresponding control signal based on the current digital signal, thereby adjusting the output voltage of the AC/DC converter 2, and then returns to step S301. If the digital signal is greater than or equal to the first critical value, the process proceeds to step S303, and the control circuit 203 further controls the pulse width modulator 207 to stop outputting the pulse width modulation signal PWM. Following the step S305, the logic circuit continues to compare the digital signal with the second threshold until the digital signal reaches less than or equal to the second threshold, and the control circuit 203 continues the operation of step S303. In step S305, when the digital signal is less than or equal to the second critical value, the process proceeds to step S307. Step 307, the control circuit 203 outputs a corresponding control signal according to the current digital signal, thereby adjusting and increasing the output voltage of the AC/DC converter 2, and returning to step S301, comparing again whether the digital signal is greater than or equal to the first critical value. However, in step S301, if the digital signal is not greater than or equal to the first threshold, step S307 is continued, and the control circuit 203 outputs a corresponding control signal according to the digital signal, thereby adjusting and increasing the output of the AC/DC converter 2. The voltage until the digital signal reaches greater than or equal to the first critical value.

For example, the first threshold may be set to +12V, and the second threshold may be set to +8V, but the invention is not limited thereto. In practice, when the AC/DC converter of the present invention enters the standby mode of operation, it is determined by the control circuit whether the current output voltage reaches +12 V (step S301), and if +12 V is reached, the control circuit output corresponds to The control signal further controls the pulse width modulator to stop outputting the pulse width modulation signal. At this time, the primary side coil stops operating due to the switching switch stopping its switching operation, so the output voltage of the secondary side coil is dropped by +12V. That is, the voltage supply is currently only supplied from the secondary side coil, so that the output of the secondary side coil When the voltage falls from +12V to +8V (step S303), when the control circuit detects that the output voltage is lower than and reaches +8V by the logic circuit (step S305), the pulse width modulator output pulse wave is again controlled. The width modulation signal, that is, the switching of the switching switch is again activated, and the AC/DC converter is again charged, and the secondary side coil output voltage is returned to +12 V (step S307).

Briefly, the AC/DC converter of the present invention provides a fluctuating output voltage within a specified range when in the standby mode of operation. For example, the output voltage fluctuates from +12 to +8V.

According to the above, since the switching operation of the switching switch continues even in the standby mode due to the circuit configuration of the conventional AC/DC converter, excessive power is lost on the primary side coil. On the contrary, the AC/DC converter provided by the present invention can indirectly control the switching switching stop action of the switching switch in the standby working mode, so that the output voltage from the secondary side coil fluctuates within a specific range, because the switching switch stops. The primary side coil is turned off, so that the coil power loss is zero, and the power consumption of the overall AC/DC converter in the standby mode of operation is also greatly reduced.

It is to be noted that the object of the present invention is to indirectly control the switching of the AC/DC converter in the standby mode so that the output voltage of the AC/DC converter fluctuates within a certain range. However, all the steps of FIG. 3 are only one way of judging, and the present invention is not limited thereto.

In order to increase the protection against the overvoltage of the AC/DC converter, in the preferred embodiment of the present invention, the logic circuit can further compare the digital signal with a third threshold, wherein the third threshold is greater than the The first threshold value, when the digital signal is greater than the third threshold, the control circuit can determine that the AC/DC converter enters an overvoltage mode of operation, and the control circuit outputs a corresponding control signal, thereby controlling the pulse width modulator to stop. Output pulse width modulation signal. That is, the output voltage of the AC/DC converter is continuously increased, and the operation of the primary side coil is turned off, so that the output voltage of the secondary side coil is continuously lowered to achieve circuit protection at the time of overvoltage.
