I look at it this way. With no large energy storage (electrolytic capacitors) your LEDs will always be dissipating the instantaneous input power, which will be sinusoidal at twice the line frequency. So you will get high ripple current and possibly visible flicker. You might also have more difficulty dealing with mains transients if it's a simple b

I'm a master student. I designed a receiver using N-path filters for filtering & mixing input signals.
For driving the N-path filter switches, we need to design a clock genefration with 1/N % duty-cycle.
But in the total noise of receiver, we observe flicker noise of clock generation elements & it's significant.
How do I decrease it???

As Klaus explained, if you have a fixed threshold there will always be 'flicker' as it is crossed, even if you do averaging first. The averaging takes out variations due to noise and measurement consistency but if the result is still a fixed value, there will be a problem with the exact point it is exceeded. You need to adjust the thresholds (eith

There is a mathematical solution, if you are interested , by computing impedance of LEDs and caps.
Also LEDs would benefit with a diode bridge after the triac to give DC instead of half wave rectified by LEDs to reduce flicker when on.

To know the inverter power (magnitude and direction), you'll multiply and voltage and current (instantaneous power) and average the product. Under circumstances, it's sufficient to form sign(P) = sign(V) xor sign (I), needs only two comparators.
The inverter can also "source" or "sink" reactive power, in this case sign (P) will flicker with doub

It is normal for a lamp to flicker on and off at double the mains frequency for long fluorescent tube lamps or at around 38kHz for compact fluorescent light bulbs.
You must smooth the on-off fluctuations from the IR detector with a filter.

If you operate your inverter with constant load, there won't be any flicker. So apparently you are creating a problem with your approach rather than solving it.
First step to understand the system behavior would be to run a control characteristic without feedback to verify that the duty cycle variation is working correctly. Secondly verify that

Don't know what the "segment delay" value actually is, but there should be no problem to run the code in real hardware without flicker.
In case you are talking about flickering in the proteus simulation, I suspect a pure simulation problem. Adjust the timeout in the LED display properties.

flicker noise is infinite at DC.
Speaking properly, what tends to infinity in the flicker noise model is its power spectral density.
If I pass flicker noise through an on/off switch with switching frequency w, what the output spectrum would be? Would the spectrum be infinite at w, 3*w, 5*w?etc?

If the said delay is per row, 10 ms is surely too slow, 1 ms (= about 80 Hz refresh frequency) should be suffcient for flicker-free operation. To be sure that we are talking about the same thing, you should better describe the row and column signal sequence. May there something wrong.

According to Leeson phase noise equation, doubling the loaded-Q the phase noise gets 6dB better.
Try to use Q of 100 instead of 50, and see what happen. At least you find if the reason is the low Q filter added to the circuit.
Beware that Leeson equation applies only between 1/f flicker corner and the corner where the white (flat) noise starts.

Generally flicker noise tends to rise with Vov, see the following snippet. Hence triode region (large Vov, small Vds) will probably exhibit more flicker noise than saturation region. Still, operation in strong inversion mode (with large Vov and large Vds) would probably exhibit even more flicker noise in saturation region.
