Having issues with your power solution?
Need better Power Quality and Energy Efficiency?
There are many factors that can negatively impact on the power supply, and this can cause an increase in energy drawn from the network to compensate for these issues, which in turn increases energy costs and could reduce the life expectancy of some parts.
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?
The MnZn-based PC200 ferrite material is characterized by low losses at high frequencies. It was developed specifically for power supplies and frequency converters that operate with fast-switching power semiconductors on…
