Friday, 26 May 2023 (10:00 AM ET): "2023 Magnet Challenge Webinar Series #4: "On the Complexity of Magnetic Models" by Shukai Wang, Princeton University, USA



Abstract: Core losses and hysteresis loops are critical information in the design process of power magnetics, yet the physics behind them is not fully understood. Both losses and hysteresis loops change for each magnetic material, are highly nonlinear, and depend heavily on the electrical operating conditions (e.g., waveform, frequency, amplitude, dc bias), the mechanical properties (e.g., pressure, vibration), as well as temperature and geometry of the magnetic components. Understanding the complexity of these factors is important for the development of accurate models and their applicability and limitations. Existing studies on power magnetics are usually developed based on a small amount of data and do not reveal the full magnetic behavior across a wide range of operating conditions. This talk will provide an overview on the complexity of magnetic models and discuss possible solutions to address the model challenges.
