The seminar will present a comprehensive overview of the modern magnetic technologies presently used in power conversion and new trends in magnetics aimed in addressing the new demands in power conversion. In the quest for higher power densities and higher efficiency, magnetic technologies were forced to adapt and new magnetic structures were developed.

The seminar will start by presenting several key characteristics of magnetic transformers such as leakage inductance, stray inductance, inter-winding and intra-winding capacitances and their impact in power conversion performance. Methods of measuring and controlling these parasitic elements are also presented.

The seminar will present the most suitable magnetic technology for different topologies designed to enhance the efficiency and power density.

A chapter is dedicated to quasi-integrated and integrated magnetics and methods of calculating and simulating such structures. In addition, there will be presented structures wherein two independent power trains are placed on the same standard magnetic core without interference.

Magnetic technologies for specific applications such as very low voltage and high current will be presented together with experimental results.

The seminar will also show some present and future trends in magnetics for higher frequency operation.

A chapter will be dedicated to the new trends in magnetic technology for very high efficiency applications. These new magnetic technologies are compatible with the latest technologies in power conversion aimed at very high efficiency and very high power density. The seminar will address different application such as very high density and very high efficiency adapters to the multiple KW DC-DC converters and Power Factor Correction modules.

The presentation will be highlighted with design guidance, design example and experimental results, such as 99.6% efficiency transformer for 99% efficiency DC-DC Converters.
