R&S Webinar: Fundamentals of switched-mode power supply design with saturated inductors

Title: Fundamentals of switched-mode power supply design with saturated inductors (Europe / Asia)

Date: Tuesday, March 29, 2022

Duration: 1 hour


This webinar is intended for engineers who work on power supply designs.

Using saturated inductors is a good method for reducing the size and weight of switched-mode power supplies, if the properties of the inductor are well understood so that a suitable example can be selected.

The first webinar of this expert webinar series introduces the fundamental concepts, models and methods for designing switch-mode power supplies making use of saturated inductors. Experimental measurements show how to characterize the inductance and losses of saturated inductors, using basic T&M equipment.
