About the Seminar:

The tremendous progress
in semiconductor technology moved the spotlight for efficiency quest towards magnetics.
The progress in magnetic technology has been limited, though novel magnetic
solutions were developed and used in some recent applications. The seminar will
focus on the latest magnetic technologies capable of pushing efficiency to a
very high level. A study of the loss mechanism in magnetics and ways to improve
it, together with novel magnetic structures will be presented. The seminar will
present in detail all the parasitic elements in magnetics, the loss mechanism
associated with it and solutions in addressing them.

following items will be analyzed:

Leakage Inductance and methods of control
and reduction.

Stray Inductance and its effects.

Parasitic capacitances and method of

Gap effect and techniques to reduce it.

EMI suppression in transformers.

Loss due to the “end effect:” and methods
of reduction.


Since 1992 Rompower is presenting professional
seminars at different International conferences such as APEC and PCIM Europe.
The seminars were attended with great enthusiasm by many power conversion
emgineers over the years with great reviews. Below are several reviews from
previous seminars at APEC.
