This paper describes an analysis of the behavior of orthogonal-core type push-pull parametric transformers, taking the iron loss of the orthogonal-cores and the copper loss of the windings into consideration. The analysis was performed for the magnetic circuit of the orthogonal-core under magnetic saturation and with hysteresis. To improve the accuracy of calculations, the saturation characteristic was approximated by a series which includes terms of up to 21st order in the flux, and the hysteresis curve by a series including terms of up to 5th order in the exciting voltage. The calculated results show good agreement with experimental data. The analytical method presented here is useful for optimizing the design of push-pull parametric transformers.
