This paper shows the analyses, the drawback and benefit of compaction of a litz-wire coil. The experiment of a temperature-rise test shows the good effect of increasing the thermal conductivity. Further measurements with LCR meter shows a drawback in an increasing radio frequency resistance. The thermal conductivity improvement increases the performance of the coil with several components in the current spectrum. But a exact analyse shows also the better behaviour at pure radio frequency current. © VDE VERLAG GMBH · Berlin · Offenbach.

In this paper, a systematic procedure is presented, how to predict the AC resistance of litz-wire windings considering air gap fringing fields. For this purpose, an equivalent complex permeability model is derived for hexagonally packed wires. It is shown, how finite element method (FEM) can be used to determine the real as well as the imaginary part of the complex permeability with the copper filling factor as a parameter. A further FEM-model is deduced to describe the air gap fringing fields of gapped inductors. Accordingly, the exact proximity losses of the litz-wire winding are determined correctly and the AC resistance of practical inductors can be predicted over a wide frequency range with high accuracy. This offers the opportunity to optimize such components. Finally, the influence of various parameters on the copper losses is investigated and verified by means of experimental data drawn from impedance measurements. © 2013 IEEE.

In this paper, a practical method is presented, how to adjust the inductance curve of a nonlinear (saturable) inductor with respect to a desired shape. For these purposes, a nonlinear model was developed based on finite element method (FEM). It is shown how a highly efficient construction with low stray fields and maximum package density can be achieved. Different prototype inductors were realized to illustrate the practical capability for photovoltaic (PV) inverter as well as active power factor correction (PFC) applications. All simulation is verified by means of experimental data drawn from electrical measurements. © 2012 VDE VERLAG GmbH.

Proceedings of EPE-PEMC 2010 - 14th International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference | Year: 2010

In this paper an efficient water cooled power transformer with an application to high frequency induction heating is presented. The secondary side of the transformer is realized by a water cooled copper tube with rectangular cross section. The main advantage of the construction is the combination of copper band and copper tube windings. This winding configuration allows the interleaving of the windings with the direct consequence of considerably reduced copper losses due to the well known proximity effect. Furthermore a very low leakage inductance of the transformer is obtained. Finite element simulations are conducted to investigate the copper losses and the leakage inductance with respect to different winding arrangements. The model is finally verified by means of experimental data drawn from a realized prototype. © 2010 IEEE.

In this paper, a new method to construct ac electrical properties from impedance measurements using conventional ring core specimens is proposed. Different coaxial cartridges are developed allowing four-wire measurements with an automatic compensation of the test-leads. To achieve optimum results, the specific material parameters are reconstructed from the measured impedances by means of an analytical solution of Maxwell's equations for the toroidal sample geometry. Hence inhomogeneous electromagnetic fields due to occurring eddy currents and displacement currents are considered up to the megahertz range. To investigate the influence of the temperature on the electrical properties, the temperature-resistant cartridges can be transferred into a heating cabinet-specific results are finally exemplified for different MnZn ferrite materials. © 2010 IEEE.

In this paper a new approach is presented, how to calculate the inductance and the core losses of chokes considering DC premagnetization. The formulation is based on the well known Hodgdon model. Generalized material functions are applied that can be easily adapted to measured data. To obtain these data, an experimental set-up was developed according to the standards. It is shown that the measurement of symmetrical B-H loops is sufficient to calibrate the model. By means of the adapted dynamical model also unsymmetrical hysteresis loops can be simulated with high accuracy in steady state. The influence of DC premagnetization on the inductance and the core losses is investigated under practical conditions using commercial ferrite ring core specimens. The results are verified by measurements and illustrated in various figures and tables. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.

In this paper, we present an analytical procedure to predict the ac resistance of litz-wire windings considering air gap fringing fields. For this purpose, an equivalent complex permeability model is derived for hexagonally packed wires. We show how the real as well as the imaginary parts of the complex permeability can be determined with the copper filling factor as a parameter. An analytical 2-D model is deduced to describe the air gap fringing fields of gapped inductors. Accordingly, the proximity losses of the litz-wire winding are determined correctly and the ac resistance of practical inductors can be predicted over a wide frequency range with high accuracy. This offers the opportunity to optimize such components.

In this paper, the AC resistance of transformer lead-outs is investigated. For this purpose, an equivalent complex permeability model is used. It is shown, that the copper losses can be split into DC (RMS), skin and proximity losses. Parallel bundles of insulated strands are assumed for the leadouts. Hence, the proximity losses are dominated by the inner proximity effect which can be easily calculated by a given approximate formula. Finally, the model is compared to measured data.

The frequency range below 135kHz is preferred for inductively coupled radio frequency identification (RFID) systems. At low frequency, the magnetic field coupling between reader and transponder can be increased by using a ferrite core transponder antenna. In this paper, the magnetic field pattern of such a device is investigated. A semi-numerical procedure is presented, how to calculate the magnetic fields resulting from coil and core with avoidance of virtual boundaries. Consequently, calculations at short as well as at large distances can be conducted with high accuracy and minimum computational expense. The model is finally verified by measurements and further simulation based on finite element method (FEM). © 2011 IEEE.
