ECEA 5703 - Power Electronics: Magnetics Design uri icon



  • Covers magnetic component analysis and design, including inductors and transformers in power electronic converters. First introduced are inductor and transformer physical principles, including concepts of inductance, core material saturation, inductors airgap and energy storage, reluctance and magnetic circuit modeling, transformer-equivalent circuits, magnetizing and leakage inductance. Multi-winding transformer model details are covered, plus optimizing inductors in switched-mode power converters.
