Inductive Components Characterization

Motivation

SiC and GaN power devices are enablers to increase power density or efficiency of next generation power electronic systems. However, inductive components might be a show stopper, as they make up a large space and involve huge costs in current systems.

 

You may ask yourself, where are the limits of inductive components regarding higher switching frequencies and power densities?

We are your partner, who evaluates and designs inductors and transformers for customized power electronic systems.

Fields of Research

Application-related component characterization
Performance Assessment of novel ferrite materials for power electronics
Component modeling for computer-aided system design
Improvement of the performance of the system - taking into account component losses, building space or weight

The values in the data sheets of the ferrite materials are often insufficient to design these powerful inductive components for a specific application.

 

That is why we offer standardized material measurements:

Material-specific losses with DC bias

Perviousness

Hysteresis

Saturation flow for different temperatures

 

 

 

 

 

At the component level, we perform the following measurements:

magnetic parameters (eg inductance, coupling, saturation current)

Power dissipation measurement for different temperatures and with large signal
