The demand for electric vehicles, for both personal and commercial transportation, continues to grow and with this growth comes increased pressure on designers of on-board chargers (OBC) and DC/DC inverters to ensure the battery packs are efficiently utilized. This reality, in turn, puts renewed focus on the power magnetic components that are used to provide isolation and voltage conversion throughout the vehicle.
The need to ensure that these high power magnetics are optimized in terms of density, weight, efficiency and cost along with the increased usage of resonate mode switching topologies dictates the use of advanced 3D design techniques. It is no longer possible to create a viable design using 2D iterative equations. Pulse Electronics employs our expertise and vast design experience to provide leading edge power magnetics.
