Quick start guide for a magnetics inductor design tool
To support design engineers in selecting the optimum powder core has Magnetics Inc designed software; the Inductor Design Tool.
The software can help design engineers find the right material from MPP, High Flux, Kool Mμ®, XFlux™ and 75-Series, for Toroid and E-shape core designs. Using the tool, engineers can find materials best suited to their needs and both develop and refine their designs and solutions. Designers simply need to input their criteria, including DC Current, Peak to Peak ripple, Frequency, Full Load, Specified Current, Temperature rise and optional stacked core design to find the right product from Magnetics’ extensive product and material portfolio.
The software, which is based on the Microsoft® Excel office package, does not require installation on a user’s machine and is free to download, then outputs compatible part numbers for consideration. Designers can also enter known part numbers into the tool before the output design parameters are displayed.
With the design parameters displayed, engineers can make further adjustments to the design in terms of Turns, AWG and Strand within the software before plotting their design to see the behavioural graph within the software.
Acal BFi has produced a step-by-step guide to use with the design tool, featuring annotated screenshots and a full list of terms / definitions.
