Abstract

The above drawing shows a circuit in block diagram form which can be used for charging a capacitor 10. The output from the capacitor V(c) can be used to supply energy to the flash fuser of an electrophotographic system or for any other means. The circuit includes three flyback circuits which are multiplexed in time, but whose energies are added to help charge the capacitor which stores the energy needed for subsequent use.
