Ferrite cores and single air gaps are very common as this technique of a single gap is able to delay the core saturation and as a results increase the cores performance. However its not all good as these relatively large single gaps cause higher fringing flux which will lead to additional copper losses in the windings, especially when operating at high frequencies. Now single gaps aren’t bad by any means as the pros out way the cons, however can we improve this technique even further and reduce the cons?
