[Yair Darshan] It is not a simple task. See my previous two emails.

[Yair Darshan] Now you understand what I have meant when I said
there is a system issues here regarding the 50uF limitation at the PD.
The problem raised here is one of them and
the reason that I was favor of larger caps at the PD input is that it allows
even if you need some inductance at the PD
power supply for EMI filtering or you have some inductance in the cable.
The Idea is to have low L/C ratio.

[Yair Darshan] Correct, it adds more complex but it can be solved
by defining the total equivalent PD input closed loop impedance
to be positive when it is added to the PSE
output impedance. (I think now it looks more complicated ....)
