Designing a magnetic component with a specific leakage inductance can be challenging and difficult to predict as the theoretical results commonly differ form reality. The objective of this App Note is to show how to control the leakage inductance, and check the theoretical knowledge with experimental results.
In this app note we are going to prove the effectiveness of Frenetic AI calculating the parasitic capacitance comparing Frenetic estimation with the theoretically calculated using different models and real measurements.
In this application note a comparison of Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) and Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) converters will be presented.
The objective of this App Note is to compare two winding losses calculation models: the classical Dowell one-dimensional (1-D) model and a twodimensional (2-D) model, that takes the edge effect into consideration.
In this app note it will briefly commented some key aspects to take in consideration for the design of the Full Bridge transformer. It will consider a secondary side with center tap, but it can be considered for a single secondary winding.
As part of Frenetic's hardware testing of magnetic components, a magnetic flux measurement circuit has been developed.
In this application note common-mode noise reduction is discussed.
In this App Note hysteresis losses will be discussed.
In this application note it is presented one strategy to reduce the size of magnetics, based on synchronizing both power stages, a voltage fed topology in cascade with a current fed circuit.
The objective of this App Note is to show how to design a filter for gridconnected inverters that are widely used in solar and wind generation plants. Namely, various topologies, and strategies to optimize the size, stability and the efficiency of the system will be covered.
The objective of this app note is to introduce laminated cores, explaining why they are used instead of solid cores when eddy currents must be low and some of the difficulties that magnetic designers can find when this core construction is needed.
The fringing flux is an effect appearing in gapped magnetic, where the magnetic flux lines bulge outward due to mutual repulsion. This is translated into a modification of the inductance and a possible overheating in the wires surrounding the gap.
In this application note a binder solution is used in an extrusion process to keep together different ferromagnetic particles.
In this app note FRENETIC focus on the coil former and its importance.
