On Wednesday, July 29th, IEEE Xplore will undergo scheduled maintenance from 7:00-9:00 AM ET (11:00-13:00 UTC). During this time there may be intermittent impact on performance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
In this paper, we set forth a procedure to perform detailed inductor designs using population-based optimization methods. We chose inductor designs on the basis of design inputs, i.e., the inductor geometry and core material. The method incorporates recent research in magnetic materials characterization, advanced inductor modeling, and hysteresis loss modeling. We present several case studies for both single- and multi-objective optimizations.
