This study presents a detailed analysis of magnetic component coupling and its influence on electromagnetic interference filter design. In contrast with other literature, the novelty of this paper reveals that magnetic coupling should be divided into two categories: low-frequency coupling and high-frequency coupling. It is proven that coupling is frequency related and high-frequency near-field stray flux distribution can be differ dramatically from low-frequency condition. The change of the near-field stray flux distribution is caused by displacement current from stray capacitors. By using the Biot-Savart equation, high-frequency near-field distribution can be well predicted and matched with experimental results. In addition, single stage differential mode (DM) LC filters are utilized to demonstrate the influence of high-frequency coupling.
