Inductors are a main component in switching mode power supplies, e.g. used
in grid-connected inverters for photovoltaic systems and have a great potential
to increase energy efficiency. In addition to the electric requirements due to the
system architecture, energy efficiency and thermal behavior are the main aspects
for an optimal inductor design. Therefore it requires accurate prediction of the
occurring electromagnetical and thermal effects and their mutual interactions.
The design procedure is a rather complex task and the result is highly dependent
on the experience of the design engineer. To reduce the time to market and
in order to standardize the design process, a computer aided design tool was
developed. The aim is an accurately and fast prediction of the inductors physical
behavior and the optimization of all significant design parameters.
