abstract

  • A systematic improved methodology for integrated magnetics design for power electronics is presented. Integrated magnetic solutions, in which the equivalent discrete integrated components share not only the core but also the windings, allow an overall decrease in the required copper amount. However, in those cases, the equivalent discrete integrated elements usually cannot be independently designed. The proposed method allows these constraints to be overcome, increasing the design degrees of freedom.
