Automated modeling of inductive power electronic components

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


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.
