current ripple

[′kər·ənt ‚rip·əl]
(geology)
A type of ripple mark having a long, gentle slope toward the direction from which the current flows, and a shorter, steeper slope on the lee side.

Smooth, quiet motion: The DRV8846's 1/32 micro-stepping indexer, coupled with adaptive current regulation, provides minimal current ripple, which enables smooth, precise motion profiles and reduced acoustic noise.
Time integral of this voltage vector is called stator flux ripple, which is a measure of the line current ripple with the applied PWM strategy [7]-[9].
The device helps increase system reliability by incorporating a unique 180 degree interleaving method, which reduces the amount of input and output current ripple and distributes the magnetics to improve thermal management.
The iW3626 allows SSL designers to reduce their bill of materials (BOM) cost as much as 20%(1) compared to competitive solutions and is believed to be the first SSL LED driver to offer an on-chip, user-configurable power factor correction (PFC) to manage the trade-off between PFC and output current ripple.

Clock-out function allows the device to operate as a system synchronization master to other ADP1853 devices eliminating potential "beat" frequencies and reducing input current ripple using phase-shift synchronization.
Low LED current ripple results in efficient LED utilization as compared with "tapped linear" drivers.
The regulators' ripple rejection of 65dB at 1kHz minimizes supply current ripple in the face of changes in input voltage or load and their excellent transient response enhance overall system response.
180-degree out-of-phase switching reduces input current ripple by up to 50 percent.
The regulator's high ripple rejection of 65dB ensures supply current ripple is minimized in the event of input voltage transients or dramatic changes in load, while its fast transient response characteristics enable improvements in overall system response times to be achieved.
Peak current control provides low LED current ripple to minimize stroboscopic effects.
To improve transient response, inductance must be reduced; however, this reduction causes an increase in current ripple per phase which results in a decrease in efficiency.
