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 eciency. In addition to the electric requirements due to the system architecture, energy eciency and thermal behavior are the main aspects for an optimal inductor design. Therefore it requires accurate prediction of the occurring electromagnetical and thermal eects 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 signicant design parameters.
