ANSYS PExprt is used for design, modeling, analysis and optimization of multi-winding transformers coupled inductors, and flyback components. Using a combination of classical and finite element analysis (FEA) techniques, PExprt determines the core size and shape, air gaps, and winding strategy for a given power converter topology.
The ANSYS PExprt template-based interface enables easy input of voltage waveform or converter input to start the design process. ANSYS PExprt creates 2-D/3-D Maxwell designs to evaluate the magnetic properties based on finite element analysis. This enables engineers to view such things as flux density in the core and current density distribution in the windings. An equivalent model can then be automatically created to evaluate the magnetic design in the actual circuit using ANSYS Simplorer. All this helps to achieve optimum reliability and performance of the magnetic component and eliminates multiple prototyping iterations.
