PELS and PSMA: High Frequency Magnetics Workshop @APEC 2018

Power Magnetics @ High Frequency
Date: Saturday, March 3, 2018
APEC 2018 San Antonio Texas
IEEE PELS and the PSMA Magnetics Committee and will conduct the third “Power Magnetics @ High Frequency” workshop on Saturday, March 3 2018, which is the day before and at the same venue as APEC 2018.
The purpose and focus of the workshop is to identify the latest improvements in magnetic materials, coil (winding) design, construction and fabrication, evaluation and characterization techniques and modelling and simulation tools so as to target the advancements that are deemed necessary by the participants for power magnetics to meet the technical expectations and requirements of higher application frequencies and emerging topologies that are being driven by continuous advances in circuits topologies and semi-conductor devices driven by new market applications.
The target audience for the workshop is the designers of power magnetic components for use in electronic power converters who find it necessary to implement the most technologically advanced power magnetic components to achieve higher power densities, specific physical aspect ratios such as low profile, higher power efficiencies, improved thermal performance etc., as well as the supply chain for the power magnetics industry ranging from manufacturers of magnetic materials and magnetic structures, fabricators of magnetic components, providers of modelling and simulation software as well as manufacturers of test and characterization equipment
The workshop will consist of three sessions. The morning session will focus on ac power loss measurements. The lunch session will be a technology demonstration session with interactive demonstrations of test equipment and characterization methods as well as hands on demonstrations of modeling and simulation methods. The afternoon session will focus on the impact of fringing effects.
The topics and the presenters for the technical issues session are not finalized so if anyone has a proposal for a technical issue that should be addressed during the workshop please contact Matt Wilkowski at .
More details regarding the agenda for the workshop as well as registration for the workshop will become available on the PSMA website ( ) over the next few months.
