Coupled-inductor magnetics in power electronics

by Zhang, Zhe

Abstract (Summary)
Leakages are inseparably associated with magnetic circuits and are always thought of in three different negative ways: either you have them and you don't want them (transformers), or you don't have them but want them (to limit transformer short circuit currents), or you have them and want them, but you don't have them in the right amount (coupled-inductor magnetic structures). The methods of how to introduce the leakages at appropriate places and in just the right amounts in coupled-inductor magnetic structures are presented here, in order to optimize the performance of switching dc-to-dc converters.
