In this paper, we propose a modeling procedure and the design criterion for the simulation in 2-D of an inductor with a POT-type ferrite core. The procedure is capable of reproducing both the nonlinear magnetic flux-current curve and the corresponding inductance-current curve in the ferrite's complete working range, from the linear to the saturation region. The finite element simulations are carried out in 2-D with its advantages being the considerable reduction of the computational cost as… CONTINUE READING
