Discover a cutting-edge discussion of the design process for power magnetic devices 

In the newly revised second edition of Power Magnetic Devices: A Multi-Objective Design Approach, accomplished engineer and author Dr. Scott D. Sudhoff delivers a thorough exploration of the principles of design in power magnetic devices like inductors, transformers, electromagnets, and rotating electric machinery. 

The book includes new chapters on numerical methods of magnetic analysis and inverter three-phase filter design and elaborates on characteristics of power electronics that are required knowledge in magnetics. The author provides information on advanced loss models and the characterization of magnetic materials, as well as: 

  • A thorough introduction to evolutionary computing-based optimization and useful magnetic analysis techniques 
  • Discussions of elementary inductor design, force and torque production, and electromagnet design 
  • Treatments of transformer design and conductor losses, as well as inductor design in the context of a buck converter 

Perfect for practicing power engineers and designers, Power Magnetic Devices will also earn a place in the libraries of undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in electromechanical and electromagnetic design, as well as time domain simulation.
