The Electronic Transformers course applies multiple solvers and tools for the magnetic, multi-physics and system analysis of multi-winding electronic transformers. PEmag, the Electronic Transformer Toolkit, and CAD geometries are possible inputs to the Maxwell FEM tool. Losses and RLC parasitics including leakage inductance are calculated. Simplorer is then utilized for a complete transient system analysis. Multiphysics simulations can utilize either Ansys Mechanical (using convection coefficients) or Icepak AEDT (using CFD) for thermal analysis.
- Knowledge of transformers and electromagnetics
- Knowledge of lumped element electrical circuit theory, namely inductance and capacitance
- No prior electromagnetic (EM) simulation is required, but any prior experience with EM simulation or Ansys Electronics Desktop is helpful.
Electronic engineers designing planar transformers.
Lecture slide files and hands-on simulation workshops build familiarity and productive skill in using Q3D. A training certificate is issued on completion of the course.
