LEAKAGE INDUCTANCE IN TRANSFORMERS
LEAKAGE INDUCTANCE IN TRANSFORMERS

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.


PARASITIC CAPACITANCE IN PLANAR TRANSFORMERS
PARASITIC CAPACITANCE IN PLANAR TRANSFORMERS

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.


COMPARISON OF ISOLATED DC-DC CONVERTER TOPOLOGIES FOR HIGH POWER APPLICATIONS
COMPARISON OF ISOLATED DC-DC CONVERTER TOPOLOGIES FOR HIGH POWER APPLICATIONS

In this application note a comparison of Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) and Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) converters will be presented.


PLANAR MAGNETICS DESIGN: TWO-DIMENSIONAL WINDING LOSSES CALCULATION
PLANAR MAGNETICS DESIGN: TWO-DIMENSIONAL WINDING LOSSES CALCULATION

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.


FULL BRIDGE TRANSFORMER DESIGN: KEY ASPECTS
FULL BRIDGE TRANSFORMER DESIGN: KEY ASPECTS

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.


INDUCTOR CHARACTERIZATION THROUGH THE MEASUREMENT OF MAGNETIC FLUX DENSITY
INDUCTOR CHARACTERIZATION THROUGH THE MEASUREMENT OF MAGNETIC FLUX DENSITY

As part of Frenetic's hardware testing of magnetic components, a magnetic flux measurement circuit has been developed.


COMMON-MODE NOISE REDUCTION THROUGH SHIELDING TECHNIQUE
COMMON-MODE NOISE REDUCTION THROUGH SHIELDING TECHNIQUE

In this application note common-mode noise reduction is discussed.


HYSTERESIS LOSSES: LOSSES IN THE CORE THAT RESULT IN AN INCREASE OF TEMPERATURE
HYSTERESIS LOSSES: LOSSES IN THE CORE THAT RESULT IN AN INCREASE OF TEMPERATURE

In this App Note hysteresis losses will be discussed.


INDUCTOR SIZE REDUCTION, DECREASING THE VOLTS PER SECONDS APPLIED
INDUCTOR SIZE REDUCTION, DECREASING THE VOLTS PER SECONDS APPLIED

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.


FILTER DESIGN FOR GRID CONNECTED SYSTEMS
FILTER DESIGN FOR GRID CONNECTED SYSTEMS

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.


LAMINATED CORES: A QUICK INTRODUCTION TO DESIGN
LAMINATED CORES: A QUICK INTRODUCTION TO DESIGN

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.


LOSSES DUE TO FRINGING FLUX: ESTIMATION, TESTING AND AVOIDANCE
LOSSES DUE TO FRINGING FLUX: ESTIMATION, TESTING AND AVOIDANCE

​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.


ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUE FOR 3D-PRINTING FERROMAGNETIC MATERIALS
ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUE FOR 3D-PRINTING FERROMAGNETIC MATERIALS

In this application note a binder solution is used in an extrusion process to keep together different ferromagnetic particles.
