This work focuses on the accurate thermal modeling of magnetic components for power converters. The inductors of a 1.8 MHz DC–DC switching converter are simulated using the Finite-Element (FE) approach with a three-step procedure: (i) electrical simulation for Joule power loss; (ii) electromagnetic simulation for core losses and eddy currents; (iii) thermal simulation for temperature distribution calculation. The magnetic component models can be used in the full converter FE thermal simulation for design optimization and estimation of reliability hazards.

Abstract

This work focuses on the accurate thermal modeling of magnetic components for power converters. The inductors of a 1.8 MHz DC–DC switching converter are simulated using the Finite-Element (FE) approach with a three-step procedure: (i) electrical simulation for Joule power loss; (ii) electromagnetic simulation for core losses and eddy currents; (iii) thermal simulation for temperature distribution calculation. The magnetic component models can be used in the full converter FE thermal simulation for design optimization and estimation of reliability hazards.
