How to Model Nonlinear Magnetics in Power Electronics

Blog Post created by KeysightEEsofEDA Employee on Jul 14, 2016

This video shows how to model nonlinear magnetic components as part of a complete switching convertor circuit simulation. Switched-mode power supplies use inductors with a ferromagnetic core, and these nonlinear materials exhibit saturation and hysteresis in their magnetization curve. Learn how to implement the physics-based Jiles-Atherton model, and couple electric and magnetic circuits with Faraday’s and Ampere’s laws to to create a complete switching converter circuit simulation.
